In the same container

We've grown Peach Melba nasturtiums before. They're a pale buttery yellow with a ring of red-brown spots. This year they're joined by a variety new to us: Creamsicle. Creamsicle is really generous with its flowers. I find no good photographs of Creamsicle: the color is all wrong. The flowers really are varying shades of sherbet-like or milky pale orange, just like a Cremesicle, as they're back to being called (here's a picture of a "Creamsicle"). Arching over the pot are sprays of the blue-red semidouble mystery rose that has been about ten times more prolific with its flowers than ever before. The scent of these roses is very pleasant. Some years it never puts forth a single bloom.
