Wednesday Lagniappe: Passion is Bloomin' 'Round Here!

One of the most exotic flowers, to my mind, native to N. and S. America, is the passionflower (passiflora species).  This green/white beauty is the result of a rooted cutting given to me by a kind neighbor.  Check out the purple, white and blue corona (fringe) around the green center.  Stunning!
Enjoy! Happy Gardening!

Stunning is right! I can stare at this one for a long time.
