Red Passion flower

Almost 700 years ago, Spanish explorers discovered passionflower in Peru. They believed the flowers symbolized Christ’s passion (the corona resembles the crown of thorns worn by Jesus during the crucifixion) and indicated his approval for their exploration.

 

Passionflower is found in combination herbal products used as a sedative for promoting calmness and relaxation.

 

PS: Due to ~2 meters height I couldn’t able to focus very well on the centre of the flower with my pocket camera. But still, hope you could able to experience the beauties of the nature..!
