    Very pretty blooms. It is exceptional. I have a few Passiflora species but I don't know this one. I have that one smells like very sweet bananas. Does this one have any fragrance?

    Really? That surprises me. The species name indicates that it should smell quite aweful.

    Gorgeous flower!

    Oh this is a nice Passiflora bloom. Is it invasive?

    I agree that the flowers are pretty and yes, it is very invasive and is considered a weed here. Birds love the fruits and help to spread it everywhere. As children we loved to eat the ripe fruits. I consider the smell quite offensive, the name itself suggests it 'foetida'.
