Passiflora kermesina Lemicheziana. Paxton. The Magazine of Botany 1834-1844
 

'An illustrious English horticulturist, Joseph Paxton was born in 1801. Without formal education, his dedication to horticulture eventually earned him a seat in the House of Commons and a knighthood. His Magazine of Botany series, published in 16 volumes from 1834-1849 have become highly prized for their brilliant colors and the outstanding beauty of the plants illustrated.'
