Notice

Colin Mills, compiler of the Hortus Camdenensis, died in late November 2012 after a short illness. As he always considered the Hortus his legacy, it is his family's intention to keep the site running in perpetuity. It will not, however, be updated in the near future.

Passiflora serrulata Jacq.

Tender climber with entire leaves and white. purple-banded flowers.  [American Species of Passiflora, Fieldiana, Botanical Series, Vol.XIX, pt.2,  p.357/1938].

Horticultural & Botanical History

This species was described by Jacquin in 1767 but I have no information on its introduction to European gardens.

History at Camden Park

Desideratum to Loddiges’ Nursery on 6th January 1845 [MP A2933-2, p.28].  I have found no further records and it may never have been grown at Camden.
