Thought it would be fun to post our passions - flowers that is.
P.Constance Elliott - so crisp and clean - cept for that bug on the petal.
Pics of your passies, please?
Well, AuntB, I'm waiting for Ruby Glow & Crimson Tears to bloom...I think it's just possible that one or the other might know the Lady M down a notch or two...lol...
I don't remember her name, I'll look it up.
It is in a small hanging basket but is growing way up into the tree where it hangs. Soon all of the pretty little flowers will be to high to see with out a ladder. LOL
Thank you Aunt B for the ID... It is P. Sanguineaolenta

Aw, Betty...what a cute baby girl! Where'd you get it? Tess, I bought Ruby Glow last year and it didn't make it wintering over... :(
Found it. It is P. Sanguineaolenta - described as "charming". I agree!
grrrr... if it dies over the winter having never produced a bloom, I'll be ticked off. It's not growing as quickly as some of the others, but I'm keeping a watchful eye out. How did yours do before the big freeze? We usually do pretty well- I kind of think we've got a zone 9 microclimate in my area.
Sadly, I never saw a bloom..... It should do fine for you down there. I have to put them in the basement and hope for the best... however, I do keep Lady M upstairs in the dining room.
Sold!! That's it!! Next year, I must get a bright red or blue or purple.... they are all so beautiful!!
You are good AuntB. The little pink is P. Sanguineaolenta I hadn't had a chance to pull out the tag. No fruit yet but if it makes seeds I'll be glad to share.
I got it at a nursery in Jackson TN called Randolphs. A must see for any one in driving distance. http://www.randolphsgreenhouses.com/index.html
This is my Red Passie. Not a very good picture and I don't know the name of it either. It is just now setting buds. I will post some better pics later.
Tess C & Aunt B,Does the Lady Margaret have a kinda fuzzy leaf.I think I had a Lady Margaret and it just died I think to nemontophies(sp).It was especilly loved by the Gulf Frit butterflies to lay eggs on.I've never been able to find the name of it.The tag from HD just said passiflora vine.That was the first and only one I've ever seen there since.
Don, I cannot tell by the picks I have here.... From memory I wouldn't call them fuzzy,.. not smooth and shiny either. I'll look tonight.. I think the Lady has become popular in the last few years.. she is a show stopper.
No, I don't think they are shiny...I'll have to double check later, tho. I think AuntB's right, and they're just a flat green.
can you think of any that have a fuzzy like leaf.
That 'Foetida' and username:AuntB - 'Purple Haze' - and that "red one" lol, sure are nice!
My passiflora incarnata came back super strong this year (It didn't show up until June) but check this monster out (plus I learned it sends suckers up everywhere which can be rooted (overwintered indoors), and traded or sold! What a deal... lol
Grown from seed winter 2004-2005:
Nice hybrid 'Lady Camille' too - that's tight man. What's the parenting?
Same with 'Lady Margaret' - real nice too.
I've also been rooting passiflora's with about 25% success as softwood cuttings - here's some info (raw cuttings not suckers):
Oh how pretty. I love them ALL! Don, Lady M is not fuzzy like Marieortiz's foetida.. I do like that one, too. I'm still waiting for 2 to bloom. Lavendar Lady(I call it Cousin It, from the Addam's Family) showed me one bloom a couple weeks ago. It is stretching out 10-15 feet from the plant on my deck lattice.... soon I hope it is covered with blooms. The other stubborn one is on my arbor, vines going everywhere but no blooms..... (so hard to be patient). Keep em' coming, guys!
PIggypoo I love that purple. Another one that I need!!!
Yeah I have no clue on how to share passiflora either. :o(
Ditto...although I have a passiflora book on order, due in by early next week- I'll be sure to share the info once I get it.
Sounds good, TessC. LOL Hope I have some vine left by next week
