, used to be grown up poles hung with netting, showing off its shield-shaped leaves and scarlet flowers - hence the `trophy' connection.
We studied floral development in Lepidium virginicum (Poor-man's pepper) and Tropaeolum majus
(Nasturtium) as part of a larger project to understand the evolution of floral form and development in the order Capparales.
Nasturtium (Tropaeolum majus
) is a well-established favourite and the peppery leaves and flowers are edible, but I would rather grow it than eat it, so keep an eye out for Empress of India.
fabae are recorded that each utilize only one of two of the host plants used in this study, Aphis fabae fabae thriving on broad bean (Vicia faba) but not garden nasturtium (Tropaeolum majus
), whereas Aphis fabae mordvilkoi only successfully reproduces on garden nasturtium and not broad bean (Muller 1988).

and Althea rosea (Walter Fitch - PGP)
Recently, we have shown the efficacy of the hydroethanolic extract obtained from Tropaeolum majus
(HETM) leaves as diuretic and antihypertensive, relating its effects to the flavonoid isoquercitrin, which was able to inhibit the angiotensin-converting enzyme and release bradykinin and prostaglandins [3-6].
