Alaska Mix Nasturtium (Tropaeolum majus) This colourful and edible heirloom plant can tolerate poor soils and temperature extremes. Golden-orange, salmon and deep mahogany flowers arise from compact plants with slightly variegated foliage. Flowers and tender young leaves add colour and a mildly spicy flavour to salads. A perfect trap crop for greenhouse pests such as aphids and whiteflies. Also a great companion plant for tomatoes, cucumbers and Brassicas.
