My Dad gave me this and told me it was a Passion Flower vine. It's strung up in my room drying right now, and I'm hoping it really is Passion Flower as I love to occasionally take it before bed, but I've only ever worked with it dry from bulk herb companies and have never seen it growing. He said the flowers look like they're from outer space (definitely some kind of Passion Flower!) and it also bears a sticky fruit. I'd love to know what kind of passion vine this is before I even contemplate taking it, so if someone more experienced in vines could let me know, I would be very grateful. For reference this was harvested in Citrus Heights, in Sacramento, CA. I do have more pictures, if necessary.

It is a passion vine. If you have pictures of the flower you should be able to get it identified.

Unfortunately, I don't have any pics of flowers, just leaves and vine. It wasn't flowering at the time. Thanks for confirming, though.

Will be next to impossible to get species/cultivar without the flower. Maybe your dad has some photos?

It sure looks like P. caerulea. Of course others have similar leaves...

I was thinking that too but had the same thoughts as you.
