In MD I had gorgeous Clematis - 3 colors all intermingled along the stair railing... I've not traded those for the Passion Vines. The flowers are addicting and I'm hoping for a lot of butterflies.

Oh I love the Lady Margaret - those red and white whiskers are stunning . I've been growing her for years and last year was the first time for the Aurantia .. it blew me away! The shape of the flower and color shifts were amazing.

Very nice I have quite a few I buy the plastic coated shelving there perfect for a trellis nail them to 10 ft 2x4 leave 2 ft overhang of board to bury in the ground it works well foe these Incense is just starting slow this year. The red is going to town had 6 flowers open today. We can leave them in the ground here and protect during the really cold spells. Why does your second pic have 2 different colors flowers? Aurantia I almost bought that one tried all kinds of seeds gave up on seeds on this one.

The Aurantia starts out a pale pale peach and darkens with age til it's almost a deep red. They are very hard to start from seed. I've planted hundreds from fruit harvest last season and so far nothing has come up. This plant I grew from seed .. I planted 4 seeds in Fall of 2009 and one finally germinated late Summer of 2010. I managed (barely) to keep it going through the Winter until Spring of 2011 where it then took off like a rocket and bloomed.

You can see the cycle in the picture .. upper left hand corner a bud, then a newly opened flower. It starts darkening about 9 hours after opening until it's spent and you can see a fruit forming in the lower right hand corner.
