Nasturtium Black Velvet is a non-trailing, compact variety that flowers in controlled profusion making it ideal for containers and border edges. Easy to grow, long-lasting and tolerant of poor soil, both the leaves and the flowers are delicious in summer salads. But most would choose this variety for the unusually dark, sophisticated colour of the petals which, as the light fades in the evening, take on a velvety blackness.
