Hello, and welcome back to the GROW project! The foliage on the Spitfire nasturtiums has recovered from its crispy sunburned state of a month ago, possibly due to more watering or less intense heat and sun. My plants are still sparse on flowers, but I love the nifty peltate leaves of nasturtium and would almost be willing to grow them for that reason alone.
I moved the potted plant to a shadier spot, and it looks a little more alive now.
The plant vining up the alley fence looks good. It gets sun in the afternoon but the roots are shaded.
The plants I meant to go up the railing are also turning into a very pretty, yet flowerless, groundcover.
Part of that same plant, going where I meant for it to go:
And so you don't think I have zero flowers, here's one! (it's not quite that red in real life)
From the side... note cool nectar spur:
So how do your Spitfires grow?
I'm growing Nasturtium "Spitfire" for the GROW project. Thanks to Renee's Garden for the seeds.
