Passiflora, known also as the passion flowers or passion vines, is a genus of the family Passifloraceae. They are mostly tendril-bearing vines, with some being shrubs or trees. They can be woody or herbaceous. Passion flowers produce regular and usually showy flowers with a distinctive corona. 

Passion flowers have floral structures adapted for biotic pollination. Pollinators of Passiflora include bumblebees, carpenter bees, wasps, and hummingbirds. Famously, they are exclusively targeted by many butterfly species of the tribe Heliconiini.
