Nasturtium, Purple Emperor

Availability: In stock (14)

Approx. 25 seeds.

Shocking color that is quite unique to nasturtiums! Behold a bewitching color transformation as these bold burgundy-purple blooms evolve into a vintage dusty lavender-rose hue throughout the season. This semi-trailing type makes compact vines reaching 18-24 inches long. Tumbling vines of rose and wine-colored blooms make Purple Emperor the most incredible edible ornamental. Blooms and leaves are peppery and add kick to recipes while the green seed pods can be pickled into imitation capers.
