I have never seen this type of flower before. Can anyone identify it for me? This was found
In Arkansas.

Altagardener is right on. It is a Passionflower. Locally in Texas where it grows wild, we call it a Maypop. The flowers if polinated make a round, brown potato-like fruit about the size of a small onion.

I forgot the species name. Generally it is the most common of the genus that grows wild. It is Passaflora incarnata.
