Since this forum is so quiet I thought why not post a pic.

Again you have such beautiful blooms. Thanks for your post.
I love the red bloom and dark green foliage against the white lattice (or fence. I can't tell what it is).
Thanks Paul & Karen. Karen that is a lattice.
It was indeed yesterday!
Killer Subtrop! I've had blooms for the last 3 days, just awesome beauty. That double image is very sweet!
wow those red blooms are awesome. I would love to get a cutting or two if you are willing to ship some when you cut. And of course I would pay postage.
Its still too cold here in Austin, TX, my passiflora vine sanguinolenta is just greening up. And I planted a small caerullea next to it. Are the other pics caerullea, subtrop?
An unusual 5 stamen here. I often get 4, but that's a first on this plant!
I have a few questions. I received a few seeds from a member in the East Indies and what is coming up looks like geranium leaves. All the photos I see none of the leaves even began to have that type leaf. Any ideas what it will look like? Also can I start cuttings in water or do they need to be started in soil?
Hi RetiredFlorida, I have that very same red flower growing wild all over my back yard. It never fruits however. Have you been able to get your to fruit and if so how's the taste?
The p.vitifolia needs to be pollinated by bees with pollen from another plant or hand pollinated by you, it is not self fertile. I have not had any fruit yet either as I have had few blooms to try to pollinate it so far.
Paul, I have no clue what you have. Some passiflora will root in water but I have more luck with potting soil and perlite mix.
Thanks Darren, I have placed them in soil and I do see some are just starting to put on or keeping green leaves so I do expect to see life out of a few. I also posted on hibiscus my first bloom from those cuttings you sent.
Again many thanks as all my family love the plant I even gave one to our son-in-law as he is the one who plants.
