May Pop

May Pops

Actually, May Pops are what my dad called the Passion Flower. They come up in April and May in the wooded mountains of the Blue Ridge and Smokys. I always liked the name, May Pop. 🙂

The foliage is listed in wikipedia as a trailing vine, apparently, the vine stems in the Blue Ridge are underground. The May Pops that I am most familiar with have 5-6 lobed leaves and purple flowers.

I remember the outfield where my brothers practiced little league baseball was covered in may pops.
