two webstores share the same photos

penguu(8)October 23, 2012

I'm dipping my toes in growing passionflowers, and I stumbled into these two websites:

http://www.passionvinecottage.com/

http://www.georgiavines.com/

Their product lists and photos are exactly the same. Does anyone know what's going on? Are they scammers? Related?

Thanks so much.

Whatever their motivation for doing this, they don't hide the fact that it's the same company/people/products. On the Georgia Vines site, they refer to the other one as their "sister site". Passion Vine Cottage also has all sorts of things one can click on and get back to Georgia Vines.

I don't know why they are doing this. Perhaps they want to change their name, and don't want to do it suddenly? Or maybe they are splitting off their Passifloras as a different company. The way to find out is to ask them, and I'm sure it's a question that has been asked many times now.

I don't see any problem with this, although it's a bit weird. What bothers me is when people steal photos, descriptions, etc. without the consent of the other person. Unfortunately, this is pretty common.

Randy answered the pic question but I just wanted to add that there's many much more reliable passiflora vendors then Georgia Vines.

hm, yeah, I want to know, too. Selling seeds to hybrids seemed a bit iffy to me.

Grassy Knoll, Zone 9, Brushwood and passiflorista on Ebay are some that I can think of offhand.

Again, Karyn said exactly what I was thinking. I would add that though I have received excellent plants from Zone 9, the identification has been wrong more than once. The other 3, with surely over 200 plants sent to us over the years combined, I don't believe I have ever seen a mislabeled plant. To me that is important...
