Where does it come from?
A beautiful tropical creeper from South America, its shape and colours make wild passionflower a spectacular sight. It produces a yellow/green fruit that is edible but not widely marketed (not to be confused with passion fruit). Although passionflower prefers the warm and humid climates of its native tropical forest habitat, it has now colonised many southern regions of Asia and Europe.
Its traditional properties
The Aztecs used it for its sedative properties. In phytotherapy, we now know that it helps to soothe tension and promote restorative sleep.
