|Passiflora incense. Large purple blossoms, all frilly and positively glowing.|
I can't really say which of my Passis is my favorite, I love them all. Here are the ones flowering today :)
Next is the Passiflora vitifolia, large tomato red, and it flowers on and off throughout the warm season. A large growing vine, but it does not sucker.
Contrary to all the other passion vines, the Passiflora vitifolia does not attract butterflies. So, if you want a red flowering passion vine and a host plant for butterflies, I suggest the Passiflora 'Lady Margaret' .
A bit smaller in flower size is the Passiflora caerulea. This one is a 'weedy' plant, be warned, it sprouts up everywhere. It is the favorite of the Gulf Fritillary butterflies and that's the main reason I grow it. Since I must pull weeds anyways, I don't really mind pulling the suckers.
Some of my dainty Passifloras come next, the flowers are small jewels
|Passiflora biflora, white - yellow - green|
Passiflora yucatanensis, white - orange - green
|Passiflora foetida (var. gossypifolia), white - soft pink, I grow this one in a hanging basket|
And last one for today, the Passiflora trifasciata, also in a hanging basket.
The leaves you see on the picture are not the trifasciata leaves, but somehow some root pieces of the Ornamental Jam got into this basket. I'll have to untangle the two vines sooner or later :-/
