PASSIFLORA (PASSION FLOWER)

 

(E = evergreen)

Passiflora caerulea, fairly hardy except in the coldest situations, is one of the most strangely attractive of all climbers. It is a tendril-climber, grows vigorously in the warmer areas, and in summer bears numerous, slightly fragrant flowers, blue, white and purple, the parts of which, according to legend, represent the instruments of the Crucifixion. Its handsome, yellow, egg-shaped fruits are inedible.
