龍珠果是西番蓮科西番蓮屬的草質藤本植物,原產於墨西哥,美國的中南部及南美洲等地,在香港的山野荒地都很常見。龍珠果的花很美麗,與時鐘的表面相似,故又名時鐘花。龍珠果成熟時呈橙黃色,可以食用,但未熟青色時,果有小毒), 切勿誤食。龍珠果除了花有觀賞價值外,全草都可入药,功効為清熱解毒, 利水消腫, 果實潤肺止痛。

Tiny variety in the Passiflora family, with blooms and fruits only the size of a pinky fingernail. Commonly known as Corky-stemmed Passion Flower due to the corkiness of older stems. The fruit is not hardy and transitions from green to indigo, purple and, lastly, black as it ripens.

Volunteer in my garden that I’ve trained up a dead tree to attract the butterflies and because it’s so cute – and much more controllable than its larger relatives.

The name of this lovely Passiflora is Passiflora ‘Soi Fah’. Most likely it is a hybrid between P. incarnata x P. laurifolia. More information about this Passiflora can be found by searching ‘ "The curious tale of Passiflora ‘Soi Fah’ " on the internet. Since there is no name in Chinese found for this Passiflora, I name it 瑞花西番蓮. Photo taken at the Hong Kong Park, Hong Kong.
