This is the time of year that Tennessee’s state wildflower, the Passion Flower, can be found growing wild by the roadside or in fields and woods. The vines run along the ground or climb up trees and fences, and produce beautiful lavender flowers and greenish-yellow fruit.
The things you are passionate about are not random. They are your calling. ~Fabienne Fredrickson

beautiful flower Rebecca! Does it have a equally beautiful scent?
I’ve read that some species do smell pleasant and sweet, but these were hard to smell unless you stuck your nose right down to them, and then I thought they had an unpleasant smell that is hard to even describe.
maybe when they first bloom they are more fragrant?
I’ve never smelled them when I was out walking, but I believe the Purple Passion flowers are known for their unpleasant smell.
They are beautiful! One of the prettiest wildflowers I’ve seen.
They are quite lovely with their ornate and colorful little flowers!
