SOLVED: Is this a passion vine?

Mesilla Park, NM

I planted this last year and lost the tag. The leaves feel like very fine sandpaper.

Gourd, it does'nt look like a passionflower vine to me....maybe Fromentodendron aka Flannelbush. Did you receive seeds of these maybe.

Edited because I've found a better link for this vine.

No, I didn't plant anything with that name, but the birds might have.. Darn, I thought it was a passion vine that finally came up.. I have been babying it all year. It has been kind of dormant now, but with spring coming it should start to take off. I really like that flannel bush, it is so interesting. Thanks Saya..

Which passiflora is it supposed to be? I have one with similar leaves, I will have to look in the daylight to see which one it is though.

Hi Cala, I don't know which one it is, the tag was lost and I remember it was a passion vine (or I thought). It feels a little bit rough on the leaves, not shiny at all. Will try to take a better photo tomorrow of the leaves.

I just cannot get a good focus on this one.. the first photo looks alot better.. will try for the leaves next time.

I think it might be a passion flower... different species have different shaped leaves. It's hard to say without a flower. Did you start it from seeds or buy as plant?

The leaves almost look like some of the maple trees I've seen grow around here. ???????

I planted some passionvine seeds, don't know which ones, the tag was lost. Some of the leaves are even star shaped, but I keep taking lousy photos. I tried several of them and they are all out of focus.

rough leaves sound like it might be P.foetida? http://plantsdatabase.com/showpicture/13540/

I think P.moriflolia also has rough leaves

The leaves are papery rough, not sandpaper rough,.. i did not explain it very well. It does look like the P. moriflolia leaves.

It is definitely not Fremontia. You wouldn't want one of those because of the itching they cause.

It does look a lot like morifolia.

Take a look at the leaves of your vine. Does it have a pair of glands (callousities or conical structures, green or coloured) on the base, on the petiole, or anywhere on the leaves? Where are they positioned? Most passifloras have those, including those proposed here, and the position is important to narrow down the list of species to look for.

If you find them on your plant, then I think it could be most likely P. morifolia, just check the glands and see if they are on the same place as the ones on this picture (see the leaf that is above the flower): http://plantsdatabase.com/showpicture/31739/

Well, it looks like an ivy geranium to me.

On second though, no, it doesn't.

I think I will re-pot it and after some growth, take it's photo again. It does have one of the those growths to vine up, like a curly cue and grab unto things, will repost it later in the season. I did sow some moriflolia seeds at that time, so it most likely is that. Thanks all.. A
