Just before autumn really sets in here in the northern hemisphere and dries up all the flowers and turns all the green leaves orange, these beauties are still holding onto the last rays of sunlight. Made up of flat petals on the outside, sheltering this delicate centre surrounded by lots of ombre´shading purple spiky leaves. The exotic passion flower is as delicate and equally intricate as they come.
I cut of only 3 stems and put them in a wine glass and champagne flute. Being a climber plant, I love how the foliage trails from the glass. Sadly the flower itself does not last long after being picked, so its lifespan in a vase is very limited, so enjoy it while it lasts.
