Q.Is Bat Wing Passionflower A Toxic Weed ?

Zone Northland New Zealand | Anonymous added on November 20, 2022 | Answered

I have newly discovered that I can use the passion flower & leaves for medicinal purposes meaning the Purple flower from the Purple passionfruit plant but now would like to know more regarding the bat wing passion flower plant which is said to be a toxic weed by our biosecurity arm of government but this does not mean i have confidence in this arm as they allow the continued & unregulated use of Round Up & 1080 here in New Zealand . So I would appreciate some feedback from gadefinitely experts . Thank you
