Awesome! I've spent a lot of time in easton, and have family in st. michael's and tilghman island! i love talbott county. small world!
That red one is awesome!
Great pics - love the first close up one.
When I was in Bermuda, after cleaning the room, the attendant would place place a fresh passionflower in a flat vase/tray on the bed. It would fill the room with scent!
Which ones are fragrant. Many times the local garden centres have them for sale, but they do not seem to have a scent.
OOOooooohhh! I've never seen a red one! We have the purple and a green one here, but the red, yummy! My husband says us southerners call them "maypops", but I think passion flower is MUCH more appropriate! Nice pictures, too.
I didn't even have to buy a passion flower vine.......... the birds gave me 2 as thanks for feeding them every day...LOL I have several vines growing in my "jungle" & always wait to see if I get anything interesting from them before pulling them out. 2 days ago I saw a flower & realized it was the same one my daughter's store bought vine had produced! Lucky me
When I looked online I found this guy's site who has 144 photos of passifloras!!
That is a great site Val I never realized that there were so many different colors. Does your vine produce a seed pod? Mine doesn't, it travels by runners, EVERYWHERE!!!
Wow. There are some real beauties there. I would like the Purple Tiger and Pink Pride...
I love them all
I've never grown them before, but was given one as a gift this year - Blue Crown. And I just noticed a fruiting body!! It will be fun to see if this continues to develop.
Wow, Sarah, that is so cool. I love the blue color! Anyone know how long does it take the fruit to mature?
I found out something interesting about passion flowers while trying to find out if my little fruit will someday be edible. Seems all varieties have some level of cyanide in them - and the leaves are particularily toxic - which confounds me as to why catepillers would eat them...
There is even one native to Ecuador, locally referred to as "diablito" because of it's hallucinogenic properties!
This is another "good info" site for Passiflora: http://www.passionflow.co.uk/toxic1.htm
OH! And it is reported that the dried leaves of p.incarnata, when smoked, can give a mild marijuana high. So, Maegg, the vines at your old house were really beautiful eh?
