  • 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.
