Is this a nutritional problem, or does anyone see it and recognize the issue as something else??
Thanks in advance~kinda worried. Plant seems OK and is climbing but for the spots, and blooms are few but I see no pests; could of course be looking in wrong places?
again, thanks~~!!

I've been slowly but surely planting lots of butterfly plants in my yard. I'd love to put at least one passiflora but I've read that they can be very invasive. Is there a variety that will be beneficial to butterflies but not invasive?

you can put them in a large container to control as they spread by tubers.

I asked on the passiflora forum and had that suggestion made. I think I'll try it. I don't want to turn any thugs loose on our place. We have enough problems with kudzu, poison ivy and creeping Virginia just to name a few.

my Moms sent a tuber twe,lve feet under her Roses after I cut the top back at the end of last winter. The like to move it, Move it!! lol Get a good size planter, one of the lightweight ones that look like bamboo or terra, as it'll be better for you and better for the roots too. Aftwer its a year or so old you can get a cutting and, make a 2nd planter making a ''wall of planters'' in pots instead of a wall in the ground, making just as effective screening, but no tubers to deal with! They are great plants~!

Darren,

Those might be spider mite damage spots, though it doesn't really look it. Spider mites are tiny, but you can see them.

Darren,

They will avoid direct sun by migrating to the undeside of leaves, but they aren't too picky about where they hang out. If it is mites, your best bet would be a miticide, but you can reduce their numbers somewhat by spraying with plain water (knocks them off and drowns some of them). Here's a close-up pic of some red spider mites (see below). There are several species, so they are not all red.
