Passiflora 'lady margaret'


This beautiful flower opened up in my living room this morning. It is just so pretty, I feel so blessed with it. This is a small plant I didnt even expect it to bloom this summer. It has another but that should open in about a week maybe. This plant is in my big living room window and gets morning sun and all day bright light.

Thank you calin Yep she is a little yet but she is sure showing her beauty. I was surprised when I saw the buds on her. She was still outside and her leaves were getting a bit yellish so I brought her in and put her in the front living room window, the leaves are looking nicer now and she is very happy blooming

How long are the blooms supposed to stay open? Mine has been lasting about a day (from one morning to the next).

Yup. My caerulea lasts probably a day??? Never spent a whole day watching it
I also got one that's supposed to be...WHITE. In a pot, really long vine all entangled in the plum tree above but no blooms yet!

ANY idea what passi this one is ???


Was in a pot for a couple years and I planted it out in the garden and really took off!
