Passion flowers.

Passion flower (aka Passiflora). Most Passiflora are vines thought to have originated in either the cooler mountains or the much hotter tropical rain forest. To attract pollinators, such as bees, moths, butterflies, bats & hummingbirds to them, Passiflora have evolved a wide variety, made wider by our man made hybrids, of stunning colourful flowers, often perfumed, with additional sweet nectar glands on leaves, petioles & sometimes bracts.
