Service Description

We need to recognise these poisonous plants so we know what we’re dealing with. One person’s poison is another person’s medicine. The Passion flower is the Passion of Christ. Its 10 petals are the 10 faithful apostle and its radial filaments are the Crown of Thorns. There are a lot of additional layers of symmetry to story of Jesus in this flower such as the number 3 related to the days of flowering, stigmas and its heavenly colour blue. It also resembles a clock and is known as a clock flower in Greek, Hebrew and Japanese - ρολογιά, שעונית and 時計草 tokeisō - clock plant. In Turkey it is a çarkıfelek, Wheel of Fortune, reminiscent of the Tarot. In India it is sometimes known as a कृष्णकमळ Krishna kamala for its blue colour, or a Panch Pandav - referring to the 5 Pandava brothers in the Mahabharata. Stinky, passionate, fruity, curly, timely, lovely. What is it called in your language? For more info and images, join the free forum at
