Passionflower (Passiflora incarnata)

Passionflower

Passiflora incarnata is a climbing plant that grows naturally in the tropical and semi-tropical parts of the Americas. It will also grow if planted as far north as Vancouver, British Columbia on the West Coast and Boston on the East. Its intricate and delicate flower gives the clue for its use as a sedative and antispasmodic -- it works best in fragile, delicate, and run down constitutions or conditions, and is especially well-suited to pediatric and geriatric use.
