Lovely passionflower. I would be interested in exchanging cuttings with you. Here are pictures of mine. It is a vigorous grower and a wonderful bee attractor. There is a bee on the first picture.

Hi.

The label reads passiflora incarnata. It's something I got from another gardener 2 years ago. I can't vouch for the veracity of the name, but it's growing well.

Please let me have your address so I can mail your cuttings. I use prepaid Priority Mail boxes to ensure the plants get to their destination as quickly as possible and at a reasonable cost. You can use whichever means you deem fit to ship yours; I'm definitely not fussy.

I'll D-mail you my mailing address.

Take care.
Sylvain.

Your Passiflora isn't P. incarnata - perhaps it's Passiflora foetida or Love-in-a-Mist. Post it on the i.d. forum and try to get a positive i.d.

When I saw Sylvain's I thought P foetida as well .. definitely not incarnata. Love that Roxanne.

This is a picture of the P foetida var. gossypifolia. I don't have the plain foetida but would love to trade for some .. and some of your Roxanne too Dana.

Hi.

I have to defer to your observation that this may indeed be P. foetida. I was driving around 2 years ago when I noticed this passionflower that had completely overtaken both sides of a fence. A guy was tending his plants outside. I stopped the car and walked over to see the vines. He was very friendly and handed me a broken pot with 4 rooted cuttings in it. They were healthy and obviously well established. A piece of venitian blind was stuck into the soil with p. incarnata scribble in blue crayon. He asked $5.00 for it, which I gladly paid. I never regretted the purchase. It has taken over my trellis completely. The catepillars eat it to almost nothing time and time again when they get to the leaves before I can douse the plant with a generous application of BT (or three). It always recovers quickly from the caterpillars' onslaught. And now, I'll make up another marker with p. foetida scribbled on it.

Thank you, all.

Sylvain.
