Passion flower is a vine native to Asia, New Zealand, Australia and tropical regions of the U.S.

In addition to its value as a garden ornamental, passion flower is cultivated and harvested for its leaves, stems and flowers, which produce a lovely tea. Passion flower is often combined with other calming herbs in tea blends, including valerian, lemon balm and hops.

Passion flower is one of 500 or so species that make up the Passifloraceae family of flowering plants and vines, many of which produce exceptionally showy blooms with an abundance of nectar that attract insects and birds.

P. incarnata is one of the hardiest species of passion flower and is commonly found thriving in wayside pastures, thickets and along river banks of the southeastern United States. In fact, passion flower is the state flower of Tennessee.
