Hi everyone, i found this species passiflora growing wild along a country roadside. can anyone ID it?
thanks so much,
here are some pics...
It looks kind of like P. incarnata.
You might want to post this on the passiflora forum. There's several people there that really know their stuff whe it comes to passies. Myles, Eric & Randy to name a few.
It does look like p. incarnata which is native here in this area.
Siam you should collect some runners and fruit. It's a great host plant for Gulf Fritillaries and Zebra Longwings and maybe others in your area. Here's a chart listing butterflies and their host plants.

Siam or anyonelse is there any way I can have some cuttings of this paai? I can pay postage, or exchange cuttings of the one I have, Please!! Thank you all Marcie_new
Marcie, i cant send or receive cuttings or plant material, only seeds.
Karyn, yep i posted it on the passiflora forum as well. I did collect cuttings, which im going to try to root. I didnt get any fruit that was mature yet, but i will go back there soon again to check for fruit.
The other species passiflora i found months ago, is doing well, i have about 3 plants of it, but i havent seen an flowers or fruit yet! i havent forgotten you, ill send seed when i get :)
You are better off trying to dig up a runner. They send out runners like crazy so you should be able to find one where you saw the plant.
Ooh, I'll try to find a runner when i go back there. :)
Marcie, since native passies are common in SA you can often find them available at our swaps. Just watch for the lists which should be posted soon on the Texas Forum or post it on your "wants" list in the Exchange there.
