i cant find it on google ~ found this instead!!
'passion flower is a first-rate sedative, a nerve calming agent and a sleep aid. I have personally spoken with several dozen people who, having taken passion flower, have been able to relax, unwind and enjoy a decent night's sleep'
so there is a new challenge for you stevie ~ making passionflower tea to sell??

I'll try n find it, but i remember the droplets on the petals are made by the plant to attract insects. They also have a gland on the vine stems that do the same

Ah, interesting! Pitcher plants do that too but they eat the insects!
