Actually a No. 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. All nasturtiums trail somewhat, but this is the more upright version, not the long-trailing one often used in baskets.

Comments about American Meadows Nasturtium Seeds:

The Nasturtium flower has 2 to 3 inch blossoms in shades of red, orange, and yellow. The hummingbirds love to visit the flowers, which are in pots on the patio. It will tolerate most any soil type, but prefers not to be fertilized; otherwise, you will get lots of leaves but no flowers. Keep watered, but allow the soil to dry out between watering. They grow very easily with little to no real care and can be virtually neglected and still thrive. However, this plant also attracts aphids.

          Comments about American Meadows Nasturtium Seeds:

          I have a long, narrow area that runs from my house down to my garage, with a sidewalk on one side and a fence on the other. The dirt there had become as hard as a rock. We tilled it by hand and sprinkled the nasturtium seeds along it, lightly covering with soil as instructed. The plants came up quickly. What surprised me was how tall and bushy they have gotten. They have finally begun to flower, and the blooms, while not as abundant as they might be, are brilliant in their orange and yellow colors. I've done nothing for or to them but lightly water for a few weeks after planting. They are in full sun all day, and with the little amount of rain we've had, they are still full and healthy.

            I create my own wildflower mix using a variety of seeds. I then use the mix for my seed ball business. American Meadows is always helpful and accommodating. They are the only seed company I use!

              Used as high school greenhouse project - including taste testing & served by Consumer/Family Science classes as plating presentations. Instructors & students VERY PLEASED with results! Germinated very well & quickly. Provided nice color to greenhouse. Apparently, an acquired taste - only about half "taste testers" liked the flavor. Good high school ag greenhouse project.

              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).
