Looking for ID on vines

fraukeAugust 4, 2008

Hi!

This plant grew out of nothing in a pot with soil (out of a bag with universal soil)which was intended for another plant. As an experiment i let the presumed weed grow to see what it was and to my surprise it turned out to be a passiflora!

It probably won't grow flowers this year, but I'm very curious about what species it could be...

Thanks!

Passiflora Caerulea would be my guess

I think the leaves are too thick to be caerulea. I'd guess incarnata or incense.

Pretty sure that is caerulea. The large stipules are quite distinctive for identifying caerulea. Incense has small stipules, and incarnata has very tiny stipules, and the leaves look very different.

I should post a pic of the ones I have labeled caerulea, maybe they are labeled incorrectly. I have a few and the lobes are all so thin but the flower looks right. I never bothered looking at the stipules before. What I have labeled caerulea has several stipules along the leaf stem. Does that sound right?

Karyn,

Look at the first photo above. It clearly shows the stipules and how they form a circle around the stem. That is very characteristic of caerulea. It is possible that some caerulea hybrids could have these as well, but have different looking leaves.

Thank you all for your help,
A friend of mine has a caerula and it has resemblancy, only the leaves are smaller and shinier, with more lobes. I guess to be completely sure I will have to be patient and wait for the flowers next year...

hm, I'm going with caerulea too. the leaves look uncharacteristically wide, but the plant could just be young. they're also not pointy enough to be incense or incarnata.

so I'm going with caerulea :) what luck finding it, huh?
