'Clematis Passiflora Pentaphyllea Angustifolia'

Antique Botanical Prints by Abraham Munting 1696.

Nearly a century before Linnaeus, Abraham Munting was a Dutch botanist, born at Groningen, director of the Hortus Botanicus Groninganus from 1658-1683 and a doctor of medicine. Passiflora caerulea from the foliage, with the flower colour being incorrect. Probably its earliest picture?
