Greetings passiflora enthusiasts! I understand there are a few different clones of Passiflora Racemosa. Are they all scarce or am I just not finding the sources of the plant? I am most interested in finding a clone with the reddest possible blossoms. If anone has experience with P. Racemosa I would love your contributions of your experiences with this plant as well. Thank you and have a lovely passionflower day!

P. Racemosa is notoriously hard to root which is why you don't see it for sale very often. It can be done, it just takes several cuttings to improve your chances and some patience. You can also start it from seed pretty reliably, I had some plants a couple of years ago and they flowered when they were relatively young and small. Unfortunately, I lost those plants to a freeze.
