New Passiflora manicata

I just bought this one at the Home Depot a week or so ago. It was in rough shape, but I wanted it, so I trimmed it up a bit and fed it and so forth, and finally got my first blossom. It has no scent, but it's gorgeous!

It is beautiful..but is P. coccinea I think.

RE: New Passiflora manicata

I'll be darned! I have to admit I goofed. The really embarrassing thing is that I didn't even look very carefully at the pot which contained my plant when I bought it. Though the plant is in a new pot - and thriving, by the way - I still have the old black, plastic one. Right there on it was the label "Passiflora vitifolia." Silly me!

I also found a link to a Dutch website right here on the Passiflora forum. The site lists loads of Passionflowers with gorgeous pictures. (You're probably already familiar with this site.) In the lovely pictures I saw there, the stigma(?) of vitifolia appear white, as are the ones on my plant. In the picture of the coccinea on this site, they are yellow.

In any event, I suppose I should go with the label on the pot, huh?!?

Thanks for bringing my mistake to my attention ;-) L.

P. vitifolia (grape-leaved) has lobed leaves. Passiflora coccinea has undivided leaves.
