Enjoy showy flowers that are also tasty with the Kaleidoscope Mix Nasturtium or Tropaeolum majus. Trumpet-shaped flowers in bright red, orange, yellow, and white shades feature dark accents near the eye. The blooms stand out against the pale green foliage. Both the flowers and leaves are edible and add a peppery taste to salads and drinks. The flowers bloom from spring through early summer.

Kaleidoscope Mix Nasturtium Care  

Plant Nasturtium in full sun. This plant needs at least 6 hours of sunlight to bloom well. Nasturtium prefers a neutral, well-drained soil of average fertility. Highly fertile soils cause Nasturtium to produce more leaves and fewer flowers. Nasturtium plants are low maintenance, and deadheading is not necessary.

Growing Kaleidoscope Mix Nasturtium 

Nasturtium can grow outside after there is no longer a chance of frost. These plants do well in gardens, flower beds, and containers. Mature plants reach 12 to 14 inches tall and wide. Space plants 12 inches apart when creating a row or mass planting. These plants work as a filler in a container, and 2 to 3 plants can live in a 12-inch pot.

Watering Kaleidoscope Mix Nasturtium 

Once established, these plants are somewhat drought tolerant, but plants that routinely dry out may produce fewer flowers. Nasturtium plants grown as annuals need water weekly. Plants in a container or a sunny vegetable patch will need water when the top inch of soil is dry.

Feeding Kaleidoscope Mix Nasturtium 

The Kaleidoscope Mix Nasturtium does not need fertilizer. Increased nutritional content will cause the plants to produce more leaves at the expense of flowers. Nasturtium can live and thrive in medium-quality soil.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
