They are easy to establish from seeds, and they are reliable for a great display every summer through fall. Many varieties have been derived from Tropaeolum Majus, including climbing, dwarf, and bushy plants. The Empress of India are compact and great for borders, pots, hanging baskets, or other containers. The leaves are an attractive blue-green color with beautiful, scarlet red blossoms that keep blooming until the first frost. All parts of the plant have a peppery taste, similar to arugula or water cress. In ancient times, this large flower seed was even ground up and was used as pepper. Another name for the plant is Nasturtium Indian Cress. Empress of India nasturtium care is simple: no fertilizer is needed, and regular irrigation is good but the soil can dry out in-between irrigations. These vining climbers are used as companion plants for the vegetable garden. It is said that the peppery-flavored leaves ward off many insects. Tropaeolum Majus plants will grow anywhere as an annual, but they will only survive as a perennial in frost-free zones.
