It bloomed at about 10am local time here, if that helps. The tendrils are red.

I am thinking this is p. edulis flavicarpa?

The 2 blooms are from separate plants in the same pot. I cross-pollinated them by hand. Hope this will work.

lily,
I do not think that is p. edulis flavicarpa more likely a passiflora called 'anemona' mabye not I'm no expert. It also looks a bit like ligularis I have a link to a site with lots of pasiflora pics. http://www.passionflora-images.com/index.php

I have one blooming in my yard as well. It is Belotti or x alto-caerulea. The vines and tendrils are red. The flowers are somewhat fragrant. Great passion flower. Hope this helps. Vicki

Is there no one who can positively identify this?

AGree ID as stated above.
Difficult to be certain from the picture angle-alternate pink petals and white sepals as in the link pics below will confirm.
Passiflora x belotii is a hybrid of P. alata x P. caerulea. Named P. alato-caerulea by Dr Lindley in 1824, John Vanderplank's book lists the following alternative names, P. x belotii, P. 'Empress Eugenie', P. 'Imperatrice Eugenie', P. 'Kaiserin Eugenia', P. munroi & P. x pfortii, some of which are still in use. The latest Passiflora Hybrid Lists have collapsed them all into 'P. x belotii'. Flower variations however include either a dark or light centre, one or a number of white bands on the coronal filaments & petals crumpled to varying degrees. Clearly there are a number of similar but distinct hybrids, probably all of P. alata x P. caerulea parentage. It is my view that they have been overcollapsed & could probably be separated out again, but as they are decorative & sterile it does not matter too much.

Hi Tiger,

Thanks, guys!

I've checked with the nursery where I bought it, they thought it could be imperatrice eugenie, but they weren't very sure about it.

But if it is, then according to the write-up by Myles above, it is sterile. Does this mean it won't make fruit, even if cross-pollinated? I am growing for the fruits.

fruit very unlikely.
Almost certainly empty if there are any.
Try caerulea pollen and hope.
