My nanna grew them around her door and because of the story about them Passion Flower have been tied to the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ as well as the Passion of Christ. the ten petals of the flower represent the ten apostles The vines of the plant symbolize the whips that were used during the flagellation of Christ. One of the major characteristics is the hundreds of filaments on the flower that symbolize the Crown of Thorns. The five anthers are associated with the five sacred wounds of Christ. The flower contains three stigmas that reflect the three nails that were used for Christ’s hands and feet during his Crucifixion. There is a floral component that resembles a chalice-like ovary that has been suggested to symbolize the Holy Grail. In terms of color symbolism, the flowers of Passion Vines are generally a blue and white color which can represent the heavens and purity. but I just like then because of that stunning flower isn't nature wonderful
