Passion Flower

Lush Twining Tendrils

White flowers wearing a spiky crown of violet are unusual, and according to legend, commemorate the Crucifixion. Large blooms are followed by egg-shaped, deep orange fruits that have a flavor reminiscent of blackberries and are good for baking. Benefits from hoop or trellis support and enjoys full sun. Zones 8-10, but can be grown as a house or patio plant in northern areas.

  • Comments: A favorite vine, loved for its exotic, stunningly beautiful flowers that cover the luxuriant plant and are set off by the attractive dark green foliage. The name stems from the supposition by early Spanish expolrers that the flowers represented the instruments of Christ's Passion: parts can be claimed for the three nails, five wounds, corona or halo of glory; the five petals and five segments represent the ten Apostles and the tendrils the scourges. Large, orange, edible fruit produced in the fall are another reason for this vines popularity.
