Budding passion

Swirling passion

From: Wildflowers of Escambia

The plant is a climbing, hairy vine that becomes woody with age. Its preferred habitat is roadsides, fence rows, fields, woodland edges and waste sites. Distribution is throughout the Escambia region (and elsewhere.)

The leaves are alternate on the vine. The stalked leaves are deeply palm-like with three lobes or occasionally five. Leaf margins are toothed.

Flowers are in the leaf axil; solitary; bisexual in nature and symmetrical in form. There will be five sepals (modified petals) that are white above, and five petals that are blue to pale purple. The corona segments are numerous and lavender in color or white with purple bands. The five stamens are elevated above the petals. Flowers occur in the spring and summer.

Fruit is a berry.

The plant name refers to the resemblance on the floral parts to the crucifixion story. The 10 petals represent the disciples, excluding Peter and Judas; the five stamens represent the wounds Jesus received; the three stigmas represent the nails, and the fringe represents the crown of thorns.

    I have always loved Passion Flowers. They’re so rich in colors and movement and complexity. This is a lovely shot too!

  • Thank you so much! I enjoy your artwork and like your profile page very much. A lot of my friends from Tallahassee went to Austin for the music scene a while back. Hope you are finding Austin a fun place to live!

    Very beautiful flower!!! I miss the Largo Botanical Garden…

  • Did you visit it once-or live here and move away? I haven’t been for pretty many months; I started swimming and now it is too cold, so will need to walk there again. Looking forward to it, myself!
