It is growing in the tropical woodland area next to my house, I noticed it one day watering other plants. Any ideas? It is quite lovely.

Looks like a Maypop (passiflora incarnata).

Would second the "Maypop". There are a whole bunch of Passifloras that grow VERY well in Florida I let them wander in my hedge where the purple flowers clash wonderfully with the bright orange Cape honeysuckle lol
They are the host of several species of butterflies
There is also a variety that has much smaller baby pink flowers which also grows wild. fantastic flowers for a weed huh?? lol gary
