Hardly is there a flower that evokes a sense of the tropical more than the passion flowers. P. incarnata is native to the eastern US where it grows as a herbaceous vine. Maypop has incredibly, intricate purple and lavender flowers that are followed by greenish yellow, delicious and tanging passionfruits. Often freezes to the ground and comes back in the spring.
