[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Passion flowers (Passiflora) are perennial woody vines, mostly from tropical America but with a few species originating in Asia, Australasia and the Polynesian Islands. They climb through the supporting vegetation by means of coiled tendrils. Many of them have showy fragrant flowers and several produce edible fruits.

A woody vine capable of growing to 1520 m height where supporting trees are available. The leaves are alternate, palmately five-lobed like a spread hand (sometimes three or seven lobes), 1018 cm long and wide. The base of each leaf has a flagellate twining tendril 510 cm long, which twines round supporting vegetation to hold the plant up.

The flower is complex, about 10 cm diameter, with the five sepals and petals similar in appearance, whitish in color, surmounted by a corona of blue or violet filaments, then five greenish-yellow stamens and three purple stigmas. Usually fragrant. The fruit is an oval orange-yellow berry 6 cm long by 4 cm diameter, containing numerous seeds; it is eaten and the seeds spread by mammals and birds. In tropical climates it will flower all year round.
