    Well I till have to get the native one (incarnata) but the cerulea (I was assured by the nursery person the other day thats what it is) is certainly the fritts favorite but they will eat the red one also (not as much but since it is the biggest now...)

    2) P. incarnata (I thought was caerulea but it is not, blue flowers)
    3) will have P. caerulea (has white flowers and I thought it was native because thats wht I planned to get a cutting from in the wild)

    no it ain't. P. lutea is native too. I actually saw a wild one! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    it's endangered. I think. Protected in at least some states anyway.

    Everything I've read says incarnata is the only species native to the US.

    P. caerulea, while not as winter hardy as the incarnata, will withstand chilly temps. Supposedly its winter hardy here in Zone 7 (unless it gets reeeaaally cold).

    A nice passiflora website is Misty's Passiflora. Lots of pics and small descriptions. I can't remember the exact addy but a web search should get you the site.
