Nasturtium 'Purple Emperor' is a unique and unusual variety with intricate colouring! These elegant buds open as dark burgundy then fade to shades of dusky rose, providing a classy and vintage look. Its trailing habit makes it ideal to use as ground cover or cascading out of a patio pot or a container on the balcony. Each beautiful bloom has a splash of yellow in the throat of the flower and the leaves and flowers can be used in homemade salads for a peppery taste, similar to rocket leaves! These leaves can also be used to make pesto, for other homemade dishes too.
