Edible pastel blooms against alluring white-washed leaves.
Everyone loves nasturtiums. Their profuse, round leaves and cheery, flat-faced blooms serve as a wonderful easy-to-grow ground cover. The leaves of this variegated variety are mottled white and green, while the flowers are deeply-hued pastels. The combination is a striking one, and its visual charms alone make it worth growing. But don't just look, taste! Â Nasturtiums are delicious: use the peppery leaves and flowers to enliven salads, and pickle the immature seeds as a substitute for capers!
