Nasturtium 'Banana Split'

Tropaeolum minus, Indian Cress

 Customer Rating

Showing superb garden performance in our trials, this eye-catching nasturtium produces masses of lovely golden-petalled flowers which sit on top of lush green foliage. The slightly ruffled blooms fade to lemon as the season progresses whilst the lax, bushy, slightly spreading habit makes Nasturtium Banana Split a must for containers as well as the front of borders where it will flower freely all summer.


Culinary note: The peppery flavour of the leaves and colourful flowers will enrich salads and the unripened seeds can used like capers – delicious combined with cream cheese or butter in canapés. For more details about edible flowers click here.
