Wonderful Linda. Love this start leaved variety from the common nasturtium. Looks to climb well too.

It brightens up climbers that have finished flowering, or even a bush.

Lovely red in amongst green foliage. Doesn't seem to want to come south of the border.

Tried to grow from seed but failed. Bought some roots online last year and planted in autumn. This spring, up it popped and is now nearly 5ft tall. Just come back from Scotland where I bought 2 more potted plants very reasonably. One has lots of new growth from the base which I have separated and hope to pot on and give to friends. Surrey should be covered in it by the time I've finished!!

We tried several times to get it going from bought plants but it never got going for some reason. Such a lovely scrambler against green.

The first time I got a cutting from a friend it failed. Then I bought this plant in a pot. It is amazing at the moment...... :o)
