Botany Photo of the Day will have brief written entries on weekends, holidays and my vacations from April through September. – Daniel
Thank you to Natalie G. of Spain for submitting today’s photograph from the countryside near her home.
Blue passionflower or common passionflower is native to southeastern South America. Similar to yesterday’s plant, though, it can now be found cultivated in many tropical and subtropical regions of the world (but also more than a few warm temperate areas as well). The Plants for a Future database provides more information, including cultivation and propagation methods.
