I found this stunning botanical drawing of our North American wild/native passion fruit (Passiflora incarnata) with an 1818 date on it in an ancient botanical portfolio titled The Botanical register consisting of coloured figures of Sydenham Edwards, which is property of the Boston Public Library and linked here via the Internet Archive.  




Image above is only 800 pixels wide (so as not to mess up any screens or be a download hog) but in case you want a big version (it's oh so totally public domain due to ancientness) for your blog or newsletter or any sort of art or craft project I have linked a 1Mb 2,500-pixel-wide version here.

Don't forget to check out the "similar threads" listing below for other permies.com threads about this wonderful flower, fruit, and medicinal vining plant.

Dan: Pretty! Thank you!!
I need to get those growing on  my place, they tend to run wild in this area, and I want to try some. I keep noticing them late in the year, when the fruit can't ripen, so I can't taste them.
 
Have you seen Paul's rant on CFLs?
