HAVE: What variety is this Pic-

Dont know what the variety of this is, but it is huge and covered with blooms right now. I need to get some cuttings but not sure which is the best way to do it, water or potting soil. And where do you find the seeds?
I will have loads of cuttings also... Need to get them in before the heavy frost gets it. Does this variety bear fruit?

Hi! You have passiflora vitifolia, sometimes called 'grape leaved passionflower'. I don't need any cuttings (I have one, but thanks!) but this one grows fairly easily; though I've never noticed fruit on mine. Doesn't mean they won't, just that mine hasn't yet. I'm sure somebody else will step in here pretty soon and offer more help than I can give you.

Amanda is right, it's the "grape leaved passionflower" and you need another plant to fertilize it. Supposedly it has delicious fruits, but I've never had fruit either.

Cuttings from this one root easily in water and it does bear fruit. The fruit is very pretty too.
