Why do they call it a Passion Flower? Was it once, before these plants made their appearance in garden centres everywhere, something so hard to find that wanting to add a Passion Flower vine to a garden inspired great longing and violent passions, much like some rare orchids have done?
Regardless of the backstory, I find these flowers beautiful. I grew them once but I’m not a skilled gardener. I knew even as the blooms shone on the vine, that I’d need to make a print before it disappeared the way many of my garden vines do.
