I didn't realize how many varieties there were. I grow PF-incensa for butterflies It's one of my favorite plants in a pot. In the ground is another matter. I've got shoots coming up 15 feet away from the base of my old plant, and it takes constant vigil to pull them up. Combined with pentas and milkweeds I'm loaded up with butterflies...

Oh, there are probably even more than that as botanists who go to the Amazonian area keep finding new species and there must be some disappearing with logging! Passiflora 'Incense' is an hybrid of P. incarnata and P. cincinnata and P.incarnata is notorious for producing shoots and runners, the more you prune it the more it will pop out of the ground!
