This is an incredibly petite little vine, I let the close ups fool me. I have put it where I expected it to be a larger mass, and am contenting myself to a fine filigree of dainty foliage speckled with exquisite yellow flowers. Use this as a part of a composition, and where you can appreciate it in close quarters. City dwellers? Condo balconies? Kitchen window box?

The seeds I planted started well, but only one plant flowered and then they all shriveled up and died within a couple of months. I have another type of nasturtium in the same area that does well, so I don't know why the canary creepers didn't make it.. I will try again as I liked the different leaf shape and how it flowered.

A nice climber with amusingly shaped flowers. Climbs by wrapping its leaf petiole (stem) around any available support. Winter sown it's nice to grow it up through a deciduous bush to provide spring interest. It seems, however that the young roots are some sort of slug delicacy. Direct seeded quite a few of them, and most ended up plopping over shortly after germination. The roots were completely gone and some very happy slugs were curled up nearby. Once they get a bit larger, the slugs seem to lose interest.

Planted the seed on June 1st and plants were up on June 5th, currently about 3 inches tall and growing. So far so good. Zone 7

Tropaeolum peregrinum grows well in our moist cool climate. I start mine indoors at least three weeks before setting them out in order to get earlier blooms in our short season. They are agressive climbers and fill in nicely.

This is very easy to grow annual vine. It grows well here in Finland too, so it can be grown as annual in zones 2-8. In zones 9-11 it is perennial.
This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
Arroyo Grande, California
San Francisco, California
San Rafael, California
Santa Clara, California
Elizabeth City, North Carolina
