Fertile red Passion Flower glows in the morning sun
This Passion Vine (Passiflora vitifolia) grows along fences, over shrubs and garages here in South Florida. The leaves are glossy green and grape-leaf like. But what will simply knock your socks off are its dramatic, outrageous flowers! Surely they come from another planet! But no, they come from South America.
Legend and romance surround the passion flower... legend because of historical associations with Christianity. And romance because of its suggestion of romantic passion. Early explorers and missionaries to the Southern hemisphere named these dramatic vines Passiflora or Passion Flower to help in their conversion of native Americans to Christianity. They used the beautiful intricate flower parts to tell the story of the death of Jesus, making the story more memorable to listeners. The family name, Passifloraceae, means "Flower of the Passion" or "Flower of the Cross."
The color symbolized the blood shed on the cross; the 10 petals and sepals represented the 10 apostles present of the crucifixion; the 5 stamens, the 5 wounds, the 3 styles, the 3 nails ( or, in some versions, Christ and the 2 thieves crucified with him); the vine tendrils, the ropes and scourges; the 3 secondary leaf bracts, the holy trinity. The flower is usually open 3 days representing the 3 years of Christ's ministry on Earth. Source: Florida's Fabulous Flowers, Their Stories by Winston Williams.

Bird of Paradise Flower (Strelitzia)
Botanical name: Strelitzia reginae
This plant is native to South Africa with common names Strelitzia, Crane Flower, Bird of Paradise; these names are also collectively applied to other species in the genus Strelitzia.
It got its common name-bird of paradise flower-due to the resemblance of its flowers to the birds called bird of paradise (members of family Paradisaeidae, majority of species in this family are found on the island of New Guinea and its surroundings, with a few species seen in the Moluccas and eastern Australia).
Flowers stand above the foliage at the tips of long stalks. The hard, beak-like sheath from which the flower emerges, called spathe, is placed perpendicular to the stem, which gives it the appearance of a bird's head and beak. Spathe provide a durable perch for the visiting sunbirds.
