PASSION FLOWER: Passion flowers are exotic looking topical plants that can actually be grown in much milder areas. There are many different passion flower plants. Some passion flowers are vines, some produce edible fruits. The genus Passiflora contains over 400 species. The name ‘Passion’ Flower comes from Spanish Christian missionaries who adopted the unique physical structures of this plant, particularly the numbers of its various flower parts, as symbols of the last days of Jesus and especially his crucifixion. Passion Flower ‘Possum Purple’ (Passiflora edulis) This amazing passion flower not only produces delicious, sweet purple fruit, it also has attractive frilly-edged flowers that passifloras are known for.
