My observations are that our native butterflies are not attracted to this plant, yet they do love our native species of passiflora.

Now I have read that when our Florida butterflies feed on the red flowered vines that the larvae are often aborted or emerge deformed. I think we should stick to our Florida native passiflora species and let the red one remain happily in Brazil.
