o What is passionflower?

Passiflora is a fast growing, climbing vine native of North America but is also cultivated in cooler climates. There are hundreds of species of this tropical vine. In the U.S., temperate, sub-tropical species are found from Virginia to Illinois and southeast Kansas, south to Florida and Texas. The leaves are palmately three- to five-lobed. The flowers bloom from May to July and range in many colors depending on the species—purple, blue, red, white and yellow.
