Identify this passiflora vine

Dan8fruitFebruary 17, 2012

I found this wild passiflora vine growing on a trail around my neighborhood and started to care for it. The leaves look somewhat like the leaves of a passiflora caerulea (blue passion fruit) but more smooth at the edges.. There are no flowers or fruit. I'm have more trouble than I expected uploading pictures to my post so, if you would please e-mail me, I would happily send you some pictures of the vine.

Thanks, Daniel

I agree that it is a terrible pain the rump trying to upload pictures here. Feel free to email me the pics, and I will help how I can. Another option is to join the Facebook Passiflora Online group, which has over 900 members now.

Here's a link to a tutoral on posting photos to gardenweb. It was posted on the hosta list. It's really very good.

It certainly looks like P. caerulea to me. If you think the leaves look different, some sort of comparison between the leaves of this plant and confirmed caerulea would make the point. Even if you do see differences they could reflect the particular strain or clone.
