Loads of lovely, semi-double blossoms on compact, 8-16” tall plants. The edible, sweet and spicy flowers have cream colored petals with dark orange streaks in the center, creating a vibrant contrast. They are yummy raw in salads or as a side garnish to any dish. Plants produce well both in the garden and hanging baskets. Pollinators love these nectar rich blossoms.
