Passiflora






PASSIFLORA CAERULEA.--Passion Flower. Brazil and Peru, 1699. Though not

perfectly hardy, yet this handsome climbing plant, if cut down to the

ground, usually shoots up freely again in the spring. The flowers, which

are produced very freely, but particularly in maritime districts, vary

from white to blue, and the prettily-fringed corona and centre of the

flower render the whole peculiarly interesting and beautiful. P.

caerulea Constance Elliott has greenish-white flowers; and P. caerulea

Colvillei has white sepals and a blue fringe. The latter is of more

robust growth, and more floriferous than the species.
