The unpronounceable Latin name of this plant was given by Adelbert von Chamisso, a German poet who wanted to pay tribute to his friend, the scientist Johann Friedrich von Eschscholtz.
This plant was named Passiflora incarnata in South America because its shape is reminiscent of an episode in the Passion of Christ – the crucifixion: the 5 petals represent the 5 wounds, the 3 styles represent the 3 nails and the colours white and purple represent purity and paradise.

Looking for a golden wedding anniversary gift? Lime is a highly symbolic gift which represents fidelity. It is said that one day, Jupiter and Mercury disguised themselves as beggars on earth – and were rejected by humans. Only one couple of farmers – Philemon and Baucis – took them in. In thanks, the gods granted their wish: to remain together in the afterlife.
So when they died, they turned into trees: Philemon became an oak, and Baucis a lime tree.
The fig symbolises survival and natural wealth. It is easy to grow: it takes root in any rock crevice or crack to draw up the water it needs to survive. The fig is an analogy for courage, intelligence, and the will to live and succeed.
