Thanks, Kay. It's only about a foot tall for the 2nd year and I am enchanted. If I can get it large enough, can root & send you a cutting next year. Maybe a trade or something, I would love to get Incense, which, I believe, is hardy here like P. incarnata. Have a great holiday weekend.
Beautiful! I only have one passiflora, the beautiful red one I had from last year died. I have to take mine in during winter, how do you overwinter yours? I keep mine in pots when I take them out in spring, guess I would do better to put them directly in the ground?
Since I posted this thread 2 years ago, my P. lutea is producing seeds and I also brought back seeds from a larger Passionflower lutea that I found growing in Central Va. Haighr, if you will be at the mid atlantic seed swap in Frederick, Md this Saturday, I can bring you some seeds. Both Passifloras are hardy here in Carlisle and I leave them in the ground to overwinter. I have not tried growing the Larger Lutea from Va but I will try that this summer. I have not tried to dig up the P. lutea that is already established but I will research it to see if it suckers like the incarnata. If it does, it does not send runners very far from the parent plant like the incarnata does. I have P. jeannette in the greenhouse and it bloomed its little head off inside the fenced in veggie garden last year.
Haigher, I don't know if you ever received my P. lutea seeds because, as you well know, I fell, dislocated my shoulder & broke my rotator cuff in that restaurant, but after a rather painful summer of physical therapy, I am 98% healed now. Not sure if I want to go to that February swap anymore. I'm not blaming anybody but I'm scared to go in there. Sure glad my husband went with me & I didn't go by myself. That would have been baaaaad. Anyway, if you still want them, I can send you some of each. Have a happy & blessed Thanksgiving. Buttoneer
I am so happy to hear you are doing much better! It was awful to see you fall like that and then so much pain. I wouldn't want to return there either. I doubt I will go again myself. It is a lot of fun, but I never seem to have any luck with the seeds I bring home and it seems a loss for me to get them and have them be wasted.
I did get a few P, lutea seeds from someone and didnt' have any luck starting them, so just bought a couple plants which are now inside for winter.
Have a wonderful holiday season, thanks for thinking of me,
Hi Candee. Bobbin & I will be set up at the Kris Kringle Craft Show this coming weekend 11/23 (9-5) amd 11/24 (9-4) at the Hagerstown Community College (Athletic Recreation, and Community Center at 11400 Robinwood Drive (off route 40) Hagerstown, Md. Would love to see you & then you could see everything we make. Tell your friends about it. We will be in space # 120. ((((hugs)))) Judy (Buttoneer)
Sounds like a plan to me Judy. We planned to go check things out. We have thought about getting a space there, but never have. We do the Ft. Richie show 4 times a year. The next one is 12/6 and we will be there.
We are going to the cabin on Saturday, but will stop over in the morning and check tings out. We are only about 1 mile from there!
What do you sell???
Hi Candee. Now you know what I make & sell, Tell me about the Fort Richie show. Is that a good show for you? What do you make & sell? It was great seeing you. Thanks for stopping by. I know all those people were getting to you. Judy
Ft. Richie Community Center does 3 shows a year and those are the only ones we do. Today is the Christmas Craft show. I make a lot of crochet including Standing Angels, and much more which all sells well and I do clay accessories, clay bud vases and minature gardens, Steve does all kinds of woodworking from adirondack chairs to signs and deer antler back scratchers. The inice thing for us is that it isn't juried so we can take all kinds of crafts rather than just 2. We make everything ourselves and it is always a fun day. We generally make a few hundred dollars, enough to buy more material to make more stuff.
I'll post a pic later of our set up.
