What are the pros? Loved the leaf and bloom color
What are the cons? Growth was slow
I direct-sowed these in a partially shaded location in a raised urn and as a low filler in a mixed annual bed. I loved the variations in leaf color and the deep red color of the blooms. My plants were quite small and tidy as compared to other nasturtiums that I grow in the same situations, including Dwarf Jewel. This wasn't necessarily a negative, just was other than what I was expecting. As others mentioned, my seeds were also slow to germinate and the plants were slow to flower, however, we had unusually high rainfall with a lack of sun this past summer, which is not a nasturtium's favorite weather. I will definitely try this variety again, but will plant in full sun with more space to itself next time.
