Passionflower, also known as maypop, passion vine and apricot vine, is a perennial climbing vine in the Passifloraceae family. It grows in warm tropical climates including North and South America, Mexico, West India, Netherlands, Argentina and Italy.[1-5]
It has a long history of traditional use in European, Ayurvedic, Siddha and Unani medicinal systems as a powdered herb, tea or herbal extract.[2,4,6,7]
The name Passiflora is derived from the Latin word passio, following its discovery in Peru in 1569 by Spanish explorers. They believed the flowers appearance symbolised the ‘Passion of Christ’, with the coronal threads in the centre of the flower representing the crown of thorns, the five stamens, three stigmas and 10 petals symbolising Christ’s wounds, the nails on the cross and the 10 true apostles, respectively.[2,5,8]
