Simply Beautiful – No 22 in very occasional series

The Passion Flower, Passiflora incarnata, has been appreciated for years both for its beauty and for religious interpretations of its features and structure. In this post I want to share a few photos of the Passionflower vine growing in our greenhouse where it acts as green shading for our tomatoes each summer. We cut it to the ground and it grows to cover one side of the 14 ft greenhouse. It flowers profusely and is a favourite of our garden visitors.
