I ran across this flowering weed-vine in the yard, and decided that it was too pretty to call a weed, so I have accepted and embraced it into the HIAHS fold.
While this is commonly referred to as a nasturtium, that genus name is used to describe a type of watercress. The scientific name of this guy is one of those that I need to find a Latin expert to know how to pronounce, so I think I'll stick with the common name. It's an easy plant with lots of bright orange flowers. There's basically no scent, but that's okay. I like it anyway.
