If you have a sunny corner and you want a tropical feel to your patio, invest in the canary creeper (tropaeolum peregrinum), which produces bright yellow flowers with large upper petals that look like a bird's wings.
The canary creeper, tropaeolum peregrinum, can be used in the same way, with its bright yellow flowers and its close relative, commonly known as nasturtium, tropaeolum majus will scramble up anything if given the chance - it will also cascade downwards if your circumstances allow for this.
It is only the small spurs on the flowers that might make you correctly guess that Canary-bird vine is a nasturtium, Tropaeolum peregrinum, as it looks nothing like the ground-covering nasturtiums commonly planted.
