Welcomed Invader

The Passion Flower, One of the more instantly recognizable blooms, is native to the southeastern United States and is now found throughout Europe,  but here’s the thing.  We don’t grow it here on the farm and as far as anyone knows, never have.  So this is a most welcomed invader.   It shows up every Summer in mid August, It’s vine growing along the truck rows here on the farm in search of a tree to climb.

MEDICINAL USES

Googling turned up what for me was an unkown fact about this flower.  It’s been used for years to treat insomnia and anxiety.  Some kind of extract from the bloom I suppose.  It would be nice if growing one just outside the bedroom window would cure those sleepless nights. Dream On.     See you soon on most of this same blog.
