Though you may find its relatives in the tropics, 'Incense' passionflower (Passiflora) is native to North America! It boasts giant blooms that look psychedelic with purple petals, a fringe-like corona (appendages from the corolla), and prominent stamens and pistils. It's no wonder bees, hummingbirds, and butterflies are all attracted to the flowers! Its foliage serves as a host for caterpillars of several types of butterflies: gulf fritillaries, variegated fritillaries, banded hair-streak, red-banded hair-streak, and zebra swallowtail.
Passionflower is relatively low maintenance and easy to train on trellises, fences, and trees. It is hardy down to zone 6, but may benefit from extra mulch in a protected area in colder climates.
