Very beautiful, magically different.

Our seeds grew equally well for us both inside under lights or directly early sown in hanging baskets, after last frost predictions. Grew FAST like most modern Nasturtium we've tried. But when it bloomed we really appreciated the jewel like artistic flower shape. The sharp pinwheel petal edges rivet your eyes to the firery colored flowers. Our visitors didn't know what it was. It got their imagination going and they stared at it and some asked about it. Anything but old fashioned looking! Ancient? So I agree, of mythical cognition, like the fabled bird namesake. Makes me want to put it next to a dragon sculpture to really mess with folks a bit. Do they make a garden dragon with incense mouth chamber so it smokes? With that, when they ask next time, I'd say I don't know it just appeared one day in my garden. Guess that's it. This bright stunning flower adds a magical fiery dimension to my garden. I like it boldly at eye level, where eyes have to deal with it. Ours looked great with trailing lobelia. They're edible, but I forgot to try it to crest summer salads. Or as a garnish next to Dragonfruit slices That'll l be fun.

16 out of 20 seeds germinated. Lots of blooms! Not all of them are like the pictures however. Some look like normal jewel mix nasturtium, but the phoenix flowers are so delicate and pretty. I am attempting to cross the phoenix with the others to get seeds. So far I have 3 seeds maturing. It seems that the phoenix flowers do not produce seed, or I've just been unlucky. But placing pollen from the phoenix onto the other flowers has produced seed. They bloom over and over too. I'm enjoying them.

Very fast germination, 100%!!!! It is blooming now. So far only 2 of the blooms look like the pictures; but all the blooms are exceptionally larger than our jewels mix nasturtium.
