I have a few but I don't think I have pics of the flowers. I have 3 that have unusual leaves but insignificant flowers, Trifasciata, Biloba and the batwing one, is it coriacea?

Oh GT, GREAT thread! I am enjoying looking and talking about the various passifloras we all grow! I absolutely LOVE passifloras, my weakness and passion this season. I'll add a few that have bloomed for me this season and that are not yet shown here of yet.


Star of Clevedon -




Lady Margaret

I've got several other named passifloras that are already shown.

I have several NOID that I am waiting for blooms in order to identify.

Let's keep these beautiful passifloras showing here!

printemps, I tried to find P. biloba but no luck. the other two I googled and I must say they are beautiful.
I also have the P. murucuja, but when it flowered earlier this year none of the pictures came out right. And now it is struggling along, I think it doesn't like where it is but since it is all entangled with the P. Amethyst I don't know how to fix my mistake

I found P. biloba at the local botanical garden sale here a few years ago. It is root hardy but dies to the ground every year. The leaves are pretty cool, I will try to take photos later today if it doesn't rain again.

I have P. murucuja, or at least I HAD it, I got it at a sale that the Botany Dept had up on the UF campus a few years ago, but it never did well for me. I read it was not cold hardy so I put in in the GH where it did flower, but kept dying back and struggling. I will have to check the container and see if it is still alive. Its been a while since I thought of it.

I have coerulea and amethyst out in the yard, very hardy here, bloom a lot. ALso Lady Margaret.

Well don't I feel dumb! I meant to type P. BIFLORA not BILOBA!
There is no P biloba, LOL.
These are the leaves of the P. biflora. They look like butterflies. The flowers are very insignificant.

Another interesting one with uninteresting flowers is P. coriacea, the "Batwing" passiflora.

sometimes it throws out an even more aberrant leaf, like this one:
