Passiflora 'Byron Beauty'
Passion Vine Flower

The Passifloras are also know as the "Passion Vine".
They get this name because some believe that the
flower parts resemble Jesus Christ on the cross.

The Passiflora is the food source for caterpillars of
Melpomene, Sara, and Rosina Butterflies.

There is a huge collection of Passiflora plants at
Butterfly World in Coconut Creek Florida.
