    Did you know that there is an ant-plant passiflora that hollows out its stems as a home for ant colonies - these then protect it, and the plant feeds them to keep them as guardians. Look up P. incarnata here:

    Yes, I am a huge passiflora fan! I'm always looking for more myself. They easily become an addiction. Such fantastically beautiful flowers! I have some photos of mine posted on the web site Patrick used to have. I'm not sure where that is now...Phil might be hosting it. I think its still around.

    And I love the fruit! Yum!

    There are several I'm still looking for including P. foetida and a few others.

    I just came accros some fantastic photos of some passifloras and remembered this thread. Does anyone know if any are hardy to zone 7. On Ebay some folks say not lower than 40 degrees and others that some are hardy below zero. Are they easy to grow from seed or are cuttings the best way to go? Does anyone have any to trade? All the best, Paul
