Slowest hash function in PHP for password storage?

Which is the most slowest hash function in PHP?

Or, to put it in another way, what hash function(s) in PHP are specifically designed for password storage?

Answer

I believe bcrypt is the slowest hashing algorithm currently available and is why it is most commonly recommended for hashing passwords. Here's a PHP 5.3 implementation.
