Fine art print inspired by botanical art from the 1700s by Pierre-Joseph Redoute.

Features Capucine Mordoree (Tropoeolum majus) or Nasturtium

Carl Linnaeus chose the genus name of Tropaeolum because the plant reminded him of an Roman ancient custom. After victory in battle, a trophy pole hung with armour and weapons of the vanquished foe were hung. Linnaeus was reminded of this by the plant as the round leaves resembled shields and the flowers, blood-stained helmets. All parts of the plant are edible.

Redoute's roses,flower and fruit are widely regarded as the finest botanical illustrations of the 18th and 19th centuries.
