E’ un genere di piante della famiglia Passifloraceae che comprende circa 530 specie di piante erbacee perenni ed annuali, arbusti dal portamento rampicante e lianoso, arbusti e alberelli. Viene chiamato Fiore della Passione originarie delle grandi foreste pluviali dell’America meridionale o dell’Asia e dell’Australia. Il suo nome deriva dal latino passio che significa passione e flos che significa fiore, quindi Fiore della passione o passiflora.

The genus Passiflora (which literally means passion flower) includes hundreds of species of climbing plants and shrubs, all hailing from South America. There are over five hundred species of evergreen plants in the genus. Minimum winter cultivation temperature must not be under 5 degrees and a strong brightness must be guaranteed in order to facilitate the blooming. Watering is fundamental: it should be constant and frequent throughout the year, except during the winter, especially when particurarly cold. Mostly climbing species are cultivated in Europe, and the most widespread variety is certainly the Passiflora Cerulea, with the typical white and light blue flowers. The flowers bloom in sequence throughout the summer, they attract butterflies and bees, and during the summer they give way to small oval-shaped berries, edible in some species.
