Colour-changing exotic-looking flower from Thompson & Morgan
Everyone knows how easy nasturtiums are to grow and now Thompson & Morgan have bred the beautiful Orchid Flame for the 2018/19 season.
Not only do the summer flowers resemble orchids, but they also change colour.
If you keep an eye on the blooms, they develop from red with yellow splashes and veining, to fully yellow.
The yellow creeps across the flower, creating a profusion of patterns.
Each flower is different
The final flower colour depends on weather and temperature, but no two flowers will be exactly alike.
This nasturtium is an annual, mounding up to about 30cm (12in) high and then spreading or cascading to 90-120cm (3-4ft) so it’s a great variety for hanging baskets or growing over a trellis.
Quick growing, Nasturtium Orchid Flame produces masses of bright colour all summer and won’t run rampant like some other varieties.
