What’s more freakish and fabulous than a passionflower bloom (Passiflora spp. and cvs., USDA Hardiness Zones 6-11)? They come in a bizillion colors and sizes, bloom all summer, and if you live in a warm enough climate, might even give you something to eat! Here’s a particularly stunning specimen in the conservatory at Wave Hill in the Bronx, New York. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a tag, but if you feel a sudden urge to own a passionflower, check out the selection over at Logee’s.
