    Well my maypop passionflower is growing really well this year and i have a bunch that i can trade if anyone is interested. They are hardy to zone 5 and are really nice. They pop up from the ground later then an average plant in like may but when they do they grow rapidly. THey have deep roots that run under far. Here are some pictures. The vines usually grow about 15 feet here every year and die back. They leave fruit pods on the fence in the fall in which have lots of seeds in the and smell good but not really edible as its all seeds.






    Well i am looking for the following

    drosera filiformis ssp tracyii
    drosera binata
    drosera dictoma
    sarracenia minor
    sarracenia okee giant
    ping moranesis
    sarracenia psitticinia
    sarracenia hybrids

    PAK has got some, but that's very considerate of you to point out. She sent me some seed a little while back that I'm still crossing my fingers will germinate!

    While you can't exactly eat the fruit, you can squeeze out the juice. It makes for a good drink. And the flowers are spectacular. Highly recommended.

    I love passifloras! I just wish I had room to grow more. I still can't believe my P. racemosa died while I was on vacation. I guess I didn't water it enough before I left. Here's a pic of P. 'Sunburst', one of the more unusual looking ones.

    Wow that sunburst passiflora is amazing looking. Racemosa is a nice one too. I dont grow that one but grow passiflora manicata which is similar in its red color
