Nasturtium Gleam Salmon
Nasturtium 'Gleam Salmon'
After years of hunting for a great trailing variety of nasturtium in peach and pastel color palettes, I finally discovered the elusive ‘Gleam Salmon.’ This rambling annual vine is loaded with a profusion of creamy, salmony-peach blossoms all summer long. Not only are the blooms an incredible addition to bouquets, the foliage lasts an extremely long time in the vase, adding interest and movement to large scale arrangements.
Plant type: annual
Height: 5-6 feet
Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 60-70 days
Plant spacing: 6-12”
Pinch: not necessary
Approx seeds per packet: 15
How to Grow:
Start seed indoors in pots 4-6 weeks before last frost; transplant out after all danger of frost has passed. Nasturtiums are very sensitive to cold; wait until weather has warmed to transplant outside. Provide a strong trellis or support for vines to climb.
Harvest flowers just as they are opening for the longest vase life. If using the foliage, pick individual leaves or full vines once they become leathery or firm to the touch. Both flowers and foliage will persist 7-10 days in the vase, even longer if preservative is used.
