A Museum Quality Botanical Print of the Common Passion Flower as illustrated by Curtis for his Botanical Magazine, which was published in England starting in the late 18th century. This flower was plate or picture number 28 in volume 01 of this long running flower journal. It shows an exotic looking flower with a huge bud starting to open up above the bloom. Curtis describes the passion flower thus, The present species of this flower, recently introduced into our Country with its great beauty and superior hardiness,a native of the Brazils is much better than the older varieties that originated in Virginia. Even though from the warm climate of Brazil, it seldom suffers from the severity of our climate. It will flower plentifully during most of the summer months and if trained to a wall with a southern aspect it will frequently produce ripe fruits of the size and form of a large olive, of a pale orange color. This most elegant plant may be propagated by seeds, layers or cuttings, foreign seeds are the most to be depended upon.
