The scientific name of the nasturtium derives from the appearance of their leaves and flowers. They are reminiscent of swords and helmets. The Romans picked up the swords and weapons of their defeated enemies and hung them on established posts which were called tropaeum. The seeds of the nasturtium are edible. Immature they are used as a substitute for capers.
