    Oooh, I'm so excited. Last night I noticed my first Passiflora flower bud opened and revealing the most amazing flower I've ever seen! Here's some pics. Now I must have other color varieties! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Awsome photos Larry! And aren't those flowers just spectacular?!! Now you see why I love them so much. I was entranced from the very first one I saw as a kid.

    You can see too its aptly named...cerulea!

    I will see what I can do to hook you up with some more. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    One of my collegues grows some of the odd colors commercially. There is a small, pure yellow one which most people don't know of, but grows where the common type grow. There are several shades of red also.

    Do you know what the name of your passion flower is?
    Peace

    I believe it is p. caerulea. Larry will have to confirm that. But I believe it is from a plant of mine originally. I hope to have some more passiflora cuttings soon.

    What Suzanne said [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] The plant originally came from her.
    Second flower is starting to open. Should be fully open in a few hours [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    The symbolism of the name was explained to me once, but I forget most of it. The "passion" isn't romantic, but eclesiastical.

    Here's that yellow one.



    The coral and pink should be growing by you, Larry all over the place. If you can't find any I can try to send a few cuttings to you, as they are extensively used along fences here.
