Passion Flower

In 1919 the Passion Flower was named the Tennessee State Wildflower.  In 1939 the iris was named the Tennessee State Flower.
Larry found a couple of vines of the passion flower.  The fruit may be in the picture, too.  I didn't notice it when I took the picture, but it seems to be to the left of the open flower and immediately next to the unopened flower on the right.
Larry pointed out a fruit but all the pictures I took were fuzzy.  But the fruit is supposed to be edible and good for treatment of insomnia and anxiety.  I feel anxious about trying stuff we find.  I don't know when to harvest it or what to do to it.  Maybe I can find out more.
