Nasturtiums are not only pretty and easy to grow, they are edible!

The leaves have a spicy flavor and make a tasty addition to any salad.

The flowers (usually orange or yellow) are also edible and are often used to decorate pastries or in fruit salad.

The nasturtium prefers dry, well-drained soil and is drought tolerant.

Ivy geraniums have a single bloom rather than the cluster of blooms on traditional geraniums. But like their well-known ‘cousin', the ivy geranium prefers a drier soil and comes in a variety of colors.

Vining petunias are almost considered a must for container gardens. Their short stature and thick, quickly spreading growth makes them an ideal ‘ground' cover for a container.

The variety of colors as well as the fact that they are nearly fool-proof to grow are also key components to their popularity. Deadheading each variety keeps them blooming spring, summer and fall.
