In honor of Valentine’s Day, Seasonal Wisdom is raising a glass to herbs, fruits, flowers and veggies that are ideal for love and romance.
To get the scoop on this titillating topic, we climbed under the sheets with a copy of Plants with Benefits. This new book provides a tasteful guide to aphrodisiac plants, including the appropriately named passionflower (Passiflora incarnate) shown above. You’ll also find recipes and growing tips for these plants, along with folklore and history. Enter to win an autographed copy! All photos copyright Plants with Benefits.
