Nasturtium #185530

Tropaeolum major

There are no known parents.

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 red, orange or yellow flowers appear from early summer to late autumn. If the plant is fertilized too much, it forms only leaves and no flowers.
