Does anyone know if the Lady Margret is a safe Passi for the Zebra Longwings...
I had one lay her eggs on mine, and want to make sure it will be ok for the caterpillers to eat.

They won't lay their eggs on the wrong plant. I find it interesting that you had eggs on yours - I have 4 different ones, and my LM was the ONLY Passiflora that they didn't eat clear to the ground!

They haven't hatched yet. I put it on the screened porch to keep her from laying any more on it. I'm trying to get over to a friends house who has some passionvine that is over taking several of her oak trees to get some for them to eat. IF they hatch. The Zebra Longwing was coming everyday till yesterday and today (crappy weather now) and laying eggs. I hate to pinch them off, but the plant is still in a 3 gallon pot and no way would it support that many cat's.
