Passion Flower

   
Passion Flower
Passiflora
   

The Passion Flower is an exciting and beautiful plant which has become quite popular with gardeners in recent years. The plant is a fast-growing vine with dark green, glossy, glove-shaped leaves with three to five "fingers, and its flowers are exquisite, frothy purple confections with an extremely sweet and powerful scent. Some species then go on to produce the fruit known as Passion Fruit, whose flavor is common in tropical fruit drinks. The name "Passion Flower" comes from an early interpretation of the flower's complex structure as being symbolic of the passion of Christ.
