Passiflora foetida

Imagine a passion fruit growing beneath our feet. This beautiful flower only blooms in the morning. By noon, the petals curl up into a white ball. Has orange fruits (diameter of a 20 cent coin) which really tastes like the big passion fruits. But reported to contain cyanide, so be careful when trying it. Dispersed by birds.
