    Just thought I'd mention that I can expand the Passiflora list, as it's a bit heavy on cool growers. I can definitely add P. foetida, P. 'Sunburst', and P. costaricensis and probably P. 'Purple Haze' and P. mooreana, and possibly P. ornithoura "fat leaf". The last four would be small cuttings, or in the case of the final one a tiny cutting with roots (if at all). I can definitely expand the cool growers by P. tarminiana Alba as well (although this is an unbloomed seedling, with 40% chance it has reverted to pink). There are probably others I'm forgetting, and potentially I could include another type of vine or two.

    Pictures of P. 'Sunburst':




    P. tarmininiana Alba (at the SFBG, fruit visible):



    P. tarminiana Alba has large, tasty fruit (not true of all strains of P. tarminiana IMO) and is self-fertile and self-pollinating. P. foetida likely has tiny, edible tasty fruit. The others don't make fruit easily and it's not something you'd want to eat.

    P. Foetida is actually something I've been thinking of growing for a while now especially with the whole possibly carnivorous thing plus I love the pink and white flowers it has, oh and I heard that the leaves have a distinct odor to them, is that true? Is it a strong scent or only something you smell when tending to it / trimming etc.

    I really don't know much about this P. foetida. I got seeds from someone in Mexico, which he collected in Oaxaca. I had several seedlings last year--one I kept, and one I gave to a friend in Palo Alto (10 miles South and a little warmer). Hers bloomed, at least one flower (I saw the faded bloom). I never heard that it made fruit. Mine did not bloom, most likely because I don't have much sun. I've heard San Francisco is not warm enough to bloom the plant. We are warmer, but cool weather could have aggravated things. P. foetida is famous for blooming in the first year. I think I mentioned that I don't know if its self-fertile. My guess would be that it's not, although I really don't iknow. I suspect self-fertile varieties are overrepresented in American collections, for obvious reasons. This guy was collected in the wild. I never notice a smell, but I tried rubbing a leaf and it's definitely there.
