Plant details

This is a variegated, climbing nasturtium. The striking flowers are in a balanced mixture of yellows, reds, creams and peach-pinks. The foliage is attractively marbled and striped with cream, against a light green background.They make fantastic, dramatic container and basket plants, or you can simply use them for effective ground cover. They also look good trailing and climbing over conifers, hedges and short walls. Occasionally, some plants produce pure green foliage. Many, but not all, will develop variegation at a later stage.
