Which Passion Flower is this?

bbms88June 14, 2010

Hello! I bought seeds, and got them mixed up. I posted this question in the "What is this plant" forum, but so far, no luck. I tried to attach a pic here, but was unsuccessful. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Mark

I agree with Karyn and Shawn's comments on the other forum--it looks like young, unlobed P. edulis leaves if I had to guess. However you do have more information. Are the stipules and petiole glands consistent with P. edulis? See the link below. If they are, then since there's a lot of P. edulis seeds in the world that would be the most likely possibility.

More pics! It is hard to tell from just the one little picture. I am leaning toward P. edulis also, but if the leaves stay single lobed, and they are thick and firm, I would start to lean toward a Laurifolia supersection, like P. alata, P. quadrangularis, et al.

Hopefully, you can send us some more pictures...

I have had no luck reducing the photo, so below is the url on my Facebook page. I'm learning about nectaries, and I think this plant has two per leaf (pic shows them). Does that help? Thanks! Mark

Everytime I try the link, I'm directed to the first pic. The album has both. Sorry.

Thanks for the pic! Those look just like mine! When do they begin to grown vine-like, and have tendrils? The other passionflower are tall and have tendrils.

The leaves should start growing in with the mature lobed foliage and tendrils soon. I have edulis that sent up mature foliage at about 5" but most are closer to a foot before the mature leaves start growing.

They don't grow as fast as another I have. It grew 3' in one day! Another is about to bloom. I don't know what it is, either! I'm learning!

For some reason, I kept using ' in lieu of ".
