Description / Jewel of Africa Nasturtium Seeds

One of the most elegant nasturtiums we have ever had the pleasure to grow, Jewel of Africa has richly-colored blooms in 4 colors and cream-striped foliage. Together the leaves and flowers create a striking, almost wildly vibrant mix for garden or container.

A classic name in nasturtiums, Jewel of Africa is simply unbeatable for rich color and variation on every leaf and bloom. This 4- to 5-foot vining plant is just the right size to tumble from a hanging basket or twine up a small trellis or patio tub. It can even be allowed to trail along the ground, carpeting the garden in color.

The pale green leaves are splashed with cream, often developing this variegation late in the season. No two leaves will be just alike. And the flowers are almost as unpredictable—you get cream, yellow, peachy pink, and scarlet all on a single plant, many with blotches or markings near the base of the petals. Magnificent!

Both the blooms and the foliage are edible, with a delicious peppery flavor perfect for salads and garnishes. You will want to grow Jewel of Africa in the herb and vegetable garden, where it repels destructive pests such as aphids, beetles, whiteflies, and squash bugs. It's your edible crops best friend!

The heaviest flowering will usually occur in cool weather, but this annual loves sunshine. It grows rapidly and easily from direct-sowing. Select a sunny spot in any garden soil, even poor dry ones, and begin growing one of the most beautiful, useful, and rewarding annuals you will ever see! Jewel of Africa is a marvel that every garden deserves.

I counted the seeds...
Review by part-time gardener
I counted the seeds inadvertently as i had a seed starter with spots for 25 seeds. I ended up with three open spots. The seeds are good sized and easy to handle, so iI know I didn't over-plant any. I do hope they all sprout and grow because I do like nasturtiums. They're so cheery!
