Is anyone having trouble keeping up with name tags?

Bushland, TX(Zone 6a)

I'm thinking now birds are stealing them,unless I have strangers visiting when I'm not home,not know the name of a plant and take them,so they'll know when they go to the nursery to find them for themselves.
Any way is the passion vitifolia or coccinea?

Gosh, Don, I have no idea. Maybe we'll find out when it blooms. That is terrible that people would steal your tags! Recently, I had two ladies at my front yard gate with clippers in their hand! They were going to take a cutting of Pink Beauty. Luckily, my dogs let me know that they were there. I voluntarily gave them cuttings, but I don't like the idea of people taking without asking first.

I started using popsickle sticks,magic marker then the ink washed away,can't win for losing.hopes this wind lets up soon or they'll be no more pruining the rest of the summer.

If you are sure it is a Vitifolia or Coccinea?? The leaves on Vitifolia are three fingered, while Coccinea is one oblong leaf.

See pic of my Coccinea, with leaf.

Hmmm,well Hi.
I got 2 from e-bay,one was coccinea and was vitifolia,bot both of them are tri lobed,the one I got in the pic above was from florida from a persom with 100% rating,same with the one from a nurserey in North Dakota.I guess will have to wait until they flower and guess then,thanks.

Both flower blooms look almost alike, can really only tell diff. with the leaves.

Got mine from Logees'. They will probably be having Coccinea on sale this fall. Do not care for their $10. shipping, almost as much as the plant.

Don, I think the passiflora above is P. vitifolia. Here is a picture of my friend Vickey's P. vitifolia. I think the leaves may be the same.

Tropic,
I have P. vitifolia and I too would guess that you have vitifolia (pictured in your first posting). Good luck with your plants. Very neat pictures...

Very cool, just checking if you finally opened :)

This plant is definately Vitifolia. Coccinea has single lobbed leafs so the other you bought is Vitifolia as well. I've seen quite a few Coccinea offered on ebay and when you look at the leaf or ask the seller to describe the leaf, it turns out to be Vitifolia.

That is my understanding as well,the one I have now has the single leaf.
