Gerard also grew C. cirrhosa, which sounds like a disease of the liver but simply means 'with tendrils'. This one is evergreen, flowers in the winter and has silky seed heads, a double bonus. It comes from southern Europe and Asia and so is slightly tender.

It was first called Flos Passionis, or, as John Tradescant named it in the following century, Amaracock sive Clematis Virginiana; Linnaeus in the eighteenth century gave it the name with which we are familiar, Passiflora incarnata.
