Here's another garden plant flowering profusely while it climbs our backyard fence. This is a variety of Passionflower. There are about 500 species of this plant with many versions of its extraordinary blossoms. The "Passion" in its name does not refer to physical attraction between people but rather to Christ's crucifixion. There's a good explanation for this at this link to Wikipedia.
