planman38104 Memphis, TN (Zone 7a) I have been blessed with a very healthy passionflower vine which has nearly taken over my rose trellis and has produced many, many fruits. Labor day weekend the poor plant was invaded by 100's of these worms - seems the passionflower is a host plant for a particular butterfly - but which one? I have a pic of the worm - and I also have many chrysalis.
