It's good to see the nasturtium Tropaeolum majus patch back again. The leaves and flowers give a peppery zing to a salad.with the added benefit of vitamin c and iron.
The name Tropaeolum means a trophy, and the plant is said to of arisen from the blood of a Trojan warrior. The flower symbolizes the golden helmet and the round leaf the shield.
