Maypop (Passiflora incarnata), also known as Purple passionflower, is a fast growing perennial vine with climbing or trailing stems. A member of the passionflower genus Passiflora, the Maypop has large, intricate flowers with prominent styles and stamens. One of the hardiest species of passionflower, it is a common wildflower in the southern United States.
The stems can be smooth or pubescent; they are long and trailing,
possessing many tendrils. Leaves are alternate and palmately 3-lobed,
measuring from 6-15 cm. They have two characteristic glands at the
base of the blade on the petiole. Flowers have five bluish-white
petals. They exhibit a white and purple corona, a structure of fine
appendages between the petals and corolla. The large flower is
typically arranged in a ring above the petals and sepals.
