I never planted this as I don't have a liking for its complex shape/pattern.

Munir sahab...it is amazingly complex design, consider this as the artwork of the designer (Al musavvir).

In theology, this flower has a highly symbolic value in some faiths as it represents the crown on thorns on Jesus.

Munir sb in fact now there are several varieties of passiflora..it is a vigorous climber and if you want to cover a wall or trellis in one year then passiflora is best.i am growing several vines but it is growing very fast and also it is evergreen so a good fence.
