Description

The moment when pollination occurs. Purple passion flower needs quite large bees in order to achieve pollination. Here, you can see spots of pollen on the honey bee's back and wings. Directly above the bee is one of the five pollen-bearing anthers, and directly above the anther is one of the three purple stigmas, waiting to receive pollen. The ovary, which will develop into the passion fruit, is above the anthers and below the stigmas.

Passiflora incarnata is known as purple passion flower, apricot vine or May pops. At a later stage the name 'apricot vine' explains itself, as the fruits develop fully to their oval orange shapes.
