Wild Yellow Passion Flower
Passiflora lutea

Passiflora lutea seems to spring up everywhere ... have to pull up a lot of them or they will entwine themselves around my plants. Gulf fritillary caterpillars love the leaves so I leave a few. These are young leaves and were damaged by a freeze. The leaves are usually a darker green. (San Antonio, Tx.)

The photo is of Cocculus carolinus, not Passiflora lutea.

Hi, calopogon,

I have Cocculus carolinus vines also. I believe these leaves are from a Passiflora lutea. The photo is deceiving due to the angle and it was taken at night with a flash. However, I will look into it further.

Thank you,
