TROPAEOLUM

Commonly known as Canary bird creeper, Flame creeper, Nasturtium

The familiar and edible nasturtium, the unripe seeds of which can be steeped in pickled vinegar and used as a substitute for capers, is developed from the annual climber T. majus.

Genus of 80-90 species of hairless, climbing, trailing or bushy annuals and herbaceous perennials, many with tuberous roots, found mainly in cool, mountainous areas in Central and South America.

T. speciosum has adapted so well to the cool. moist climate of Scotland that it bears the name of the country.
