Nasturtium (Tropaeolum majus) is a flowering plant known for its vibrant and attractive yellow-colored flowers. It is a popular choice among gardeners due to its easy cultivation, decorative value, and culinary uses. Here is a more detailed description of the yellow variety of nasturtium plants:

Appearance: Yellow nasturtium plants are characterized by their large, showy flowers. The flowers have five petals and are typically bright yellow in color, although some variations may display shades of pale yellow or orange. The blooms can reach a diameter of 2 to 3 inches (5 to 7.5 cm), adding a splash of color to any garden.

Leaves: The foliage of nasturtium plants is also visually appealing. The leaves are round to heart-shaped and have a waxy texture. They are usually medium to dark green in color and can grow up to 2 to 4 inches (5 to 10 cm) in diameter. The leaves are often held on long, trailing or climbing stems.

Growth habit: Nasturtium plants are considered both annuals and perennials, depending on the climate and growing conditions. They are typically grown as annuals in temperate regions. They have a sprawling or climbing growth habit, with long, trailing stems that can reach lengths of 6 to 10 feet (1.8 to 3 meters). The plants may also have a mounding or bushy form, depending on the variety and cultivation method.

Cultural requirements: Nasturtiums are relatively easy to grow and are suitable for both garden beds and containers. They prefer full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. Yellow nasturtiums are known for their tolerance to various soil types and can thrive in average to poor soils. However, they prefer slightly alkaline conditions. These plants are also known for their ability to attract pollinators, such as bees and butterflies, to the garden.

Culinary and medicinal uses: Nasturtiums are not only ornamental but also edible. The flowers, leaves, and seeds of the plant are all edible and have a peppery, slightly spicy flavor reminiscent of watercress. The flowers can be used to garnish salads, desserts, or cocktails, adding a pop of color and flavor. The leaves can be used in salads or as a substitute for watercress. The seeds, known as “poor man’s capers,” can be pickled and used as a condiment. In addition to their culinary uses, nasturtiums have a history of medicinal uses and are believed to possess antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Overall, yellow nasturtium plants are visually striking, versatile, and easy to grow. Whether used for their decorative value or culinary purposes, they add a touch of vibrancy to any garden or dish.
