Tropaeolum tuberosum 'Ken Aslet' is an amazing climbing nasturtium with small, glaucous leaves and thin tubular orange flowers that glow in the low shafts of sunlight in the autumn - just the time when we crave bright colours. Try to get an annual climber: Cobaea scandens to climb with it for an incredible combo, and front plant it with Verbena bonariensis. A choice climber. Tubers need to be lifted and stored over winter or mounded with protective mulch.
