Thinking of planting nasturtiums in my deck boxes. What would you plant with them? I have several different types of nasturtium seeds, but mostly the all yellow Milk Maid.

Let me know your thoughts, or if you have pictures - better yet.

I've combined the orange nasturtiums with Tropicanna Canna, Althenaria red threads, and an orange or terra cotta calibrocea, dragon wing red begonia.

Another great combo is culinary herbs. Everything in the pot would be edible.

Celosia would be good for an upright element and different flower and leaf form. Or a bit of dwarf oranmental grass.

I've planted a container with some bamboo in a teepee form with nasturtiums that tended to mound and thunbergia that climbed more and trailed some. Most of the colors of those types of plants compliment each other.

I know this thread is older but I'm trolling for ideas:lol:
