This compact Nasturtium grows into a 8" to 12" tall mound, with flowers in shades of red, dark orange, light orange, yellow, and dark red. Although small in stature, it's an especially showy variety because it holds its flowers above the foliage. Use in beds and borders or as a sunny groundcover.

Actually a North American native plant hailing from Mexico, the nasturtium has been a hybridizer's favorite for years. Kids love them since they're so easy to grow, and the giant-sized seeds are so easy to handle. Cooks enjoy them since the flowers are edible, and make wonderful decorations for cakes and pastries.

    Comments about American Meadows Dwarf Nasturtium Seeds Tom Thumb Mix:

    The seeds were packaged beautifully and very reasonably priced compared with all the enjoyment. They do well with very little maintenance. They arrived in great shape and quickly as I was anxious to plant them before leaving on a trip. I also shared some with a friend.

    By 

    from Columbus, OH

    Pros

    • good performer
    • Great Ground Cover

    Cons

    • Mostly Pastel Mix

    Best Uses

    • Flowered In Part Shade

    Comments about American Meadows Dwarf Nasturtium Seeds Tom Thumb Mix:

    I use nasturtium by the half pound as ground cover in my front yard. This year I tried the tom thumb mix and it was a great performer as usual, but the mix was decidedly pastel-soft salmon, cream, butter yellow. I was expecting more oranges and reds, I suppose. Other than that, no complaints. It even flowered in the shadier part of the yard.

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
