Passionflower - Passiflora incarnata
Passionflower has been used historically with the Native peoples of the Americas who used passionflower as a sedative. Sixteenth-century Spanish explorers in South America learned of passionflower. The plant was then brought to Europe, where it became widely cultivated and was introduced to European folk medicine. Also, the plant has been used as a herbal medicine for anxiety, insomnia, or hypertension. The parts used are the flowers, leaves, and stems of the plant.
