Passiflora 'Amethyst' aka 'Lavender Lady'
We are growing this plant on a arbor trellis. Most blooms point down at us as we look up.
This is almost a full year I have had this one. It has bloomed all winter although it did slow down a bit. The spring brought an explosion of blooms. It has grown to the top of the tree it is planted by.
Cool and wet summer but still doing great

Passiflora 'Lavender Lady'- Tends to bloom all at once.
Up close to the Passion Flower. I have the purple variety. These are about 5 inches long.
This will give you an idea of how the leaves look, and the size in relation to flower/leaves.
The Gulf Fritillary Butterfly, mating near the plant. This plant attracts these butterflies in Florida.

A beautiful color and many blooms.
Pretty flowers, and the butterfly caterpillars can eat it, too!
I love this plant!
Total Surprise! Found this hanging down my orange tree. Haven't found the origin yet, but it's hundred's of feet away.
