    Love the stapelia flower! I've never had the space to try a passionflower vine -- pity as I have always loved the red ones.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone. I hated to lose the passion vine. I planted it in April of 2009 and it grew well and spread along my fence. But we had a terribly cold winter here in Florida last year. There were days where it did not get out of the thirties. That's cold - regardless of where you live. I did lose quite a few plants that were outside.

    On the positive side that just gave me an excuse to buy more
