I was so excited to find this! I took this photograph in Santa Barabra CA. It is uncommon to find passion flowers in the U.S. The Blue Passion Flower is native to South America; sometimes known as passionfruit because of its almost plastic-looking fruit which grows from the flower. The fruit can be eaten raw and taste similar to blackberries. A tea can be made from this flower and is said to alleviate stress and anxiety.
