This is Nasturtium a Latin name for this adorable plant which means "nose twister". This edible plant is native to South and Central America. My friend grow this in her backyard, when I visited her last week, she showed me her garden and picked the flowers of this and ate it. I was surprised! She laughed so hard at my reaction because my eyes grew big and I said "what are you doing?" She said this is edible, try it, I tried and wow it tasted so good, peppery and minty.
