I just wanted to share the beauty of passiflora! (Maybe start a new addiction!) They are wonderful vining plants that have incredible flowers AND the bonus of edible fruit in many varieties (passionfruit...found in many fruit drinks). There is a wide variety of species and hybrids...most are tropical. The only species native to the U.S. is the p. incarnata (which does have good fruit) which can survive cold temps. The vines are attractive and make beautiful arbors and trellises or fence covering.
This is the hybrid p. 'Elizabeth'...with a friend. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Large flowers, nice fragrance, frilly filaments.
And passiflora 'Blue Bouquet'...a beautiful deep blue.
Hope maybe some of you will be inspired to give them a try. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
