Earlier this year I bought seeds of Passiflora racemosa off ebay. After growing them and them flowering, they are obviously not P. racemosa. Does anyone know of a true source for seeds of Passiflora racemosa ? Its obviously been dissapointing to grow something that is nothing like what you thought you were growing.
Below is the supposed 'P. racemosa' . Flowers are 1cm across and green. Anyone have any idea what this tiny flowered Passiflora actually is?
Passiflora suberosa is also know as "Corkbark" Passionflower...does the main stem have a "corky" crinkled look? If you can take a picture of the leaves and main stem it would help in getting an ID. Also, P.suberosa will develop a little purple fruit.
These are really quite charming plants, and here are a larval food source for Heliconian Butterflies..such as Zebra Longwings, Julia's and a few more.
Yes, I think thats correct. I checked it out on a couple of sites. It has 2 raised glands on the middle of the leaf stalk too as described. Good for Butterflies, poisonous to humans.. I shall decide it's fate later. :))
