Nasturtiums + black widow aphids

I was very excited to fill my two giant urns with mass plantings of gorgeous and colorful nasturtiums, but they were also attractive eye candy to the dreaded black widow aphid. Yup, they completely attacked the nasturtiums, which ended up in the "plant hospital" for most of the summer. I did manage to harvest tons of seeds for next year though.
