I was somewhat sceptical about the promised colour when I first saw the above pictures, as most nasturtiums have a black or rust tinge to them, so I thought these would not be the clear bright colour they seemed in the picture. But they were, and 'Jewel Cherry Rose' is a very apt description! I would and am growing these again.

Colour lives up to the photos!

I personally find most nasturtium colours are somewhat harsh, with a certain amount of black in them. Also, they are often definitely on the gold and orangey side and I'm not a fan of gold. This one is different. The cherry colour of these actually has some blue in it, quite a different base compared to many other nasturtiums.
I found that they lived up to the picture and could be mixed with purples, as per the photo above.
Apart from that they were quite fun!

These took a while to get going due to a wet spring and the usual challenges of gardening in the high Pennines but mid september sees them scrambling through my gooseberry bushes and cheering up the path edges. I will definitely be growing these again next year. Lovely.
