I think the Alaska nasturtiums are characterized by variegated foliage. The flowers aren't all orange, but they aren't a "scarlet" red per se either.....They are very cool nasturtiums, though....

Did you all know that they are supposed to repel rabbits and other critters?

Thats interesting..I dont have rabbits here but its good to know. Wish they would repel cats!!
You can eat the flowers and leaves also just like salad.

How do you start the seeds? Are they a soak overnight seed? I have 2 packages of the jewel mix seed I would like to start them tomarrow I just started my MG soaking today

I like to soak mine for at least 24 hours before planting. I've also used the wet paper towel in a ziplock in the oven to get them to sprout faster.
