Variegated Passiflora membranacea
I just noticed an auction on Ebay for variegated P. membranacea. Does anyone know if this variety is for real?
I thought I had heard that there was a question as to whether this was for real. Perhaps someone knows the story behind this.
I'm pretty sure I remember that the Ebay seller Strange Wonderful Things had an entry for variegated P. membranacea on his list of plants. Now it is missing--again assuming my initial memory is correct.
My P. membranacea gets what has been mistaken for variegation, however I've been told it's chlorosis. However, the pictures provided by the Ebay seller certainly "look" like variegation to me. And of course variegation is common among Decalobas.
Anyone know the story here? Presumably a second strain could be used to get fruit from the Strybing strain that most of us have. P. membranacea is self-sterile, and I've only heard of one person who has been able to self pollinate the plant.
