Canary Nasturtium is commonly known as Canary Creeper or Canary Bird Flower and botanically as Tropaeolum peregrinum. Canary Nasturtium is a climbing vine that grows to 8 feet high, sprawling over structures, hanging baskets and other vegetation. Its leaves are 2 inches across and deeply lobed with rounded tips, like the shape of an open hand. The decorative flowers are bright yellow and feathery resembling a canary in flight.
Like all nasturtium in the Tropaeolaceae family, the Canary variety is entirely edible and shares the characteristic peppery note in it flowers, leaves and fruits. It is the same name for the genus in which watercress belongs, another herbaceous plant known for its spicy quality.
