Plant Description

Passiflora incarnata, also known as maypop, purple passionflower, true passionflower, wild apricot, and wild passion vine, is a fast-growing perennial vine with purple flowers. Native Americans originally used the passiflora plant's medicinal properties. The root was used as a poultice to treat boils, cuts, bruises, and other inflammations. The leaves were boiled to make tea to calm nerves or as a tonic.
