That Passion Flower is stunning. Such an amazing looking flower—looks like an artist’s rendition of a flower that isn’t based on anything real.
But there it is in all it’s glory.
Thank you! I'm just over the moon!

How long did it take from seed to fruit on that passion flower?

I think about a year and a half, maybe 2. Douglas(gardenboy17) was giving out the seeds a while ago on Tville.

Update on the arbor and passiflora vines. The arbor is looking so nice, finally. And look at all the fruit forming. So far I've counted 9.

I have some Phaelenopsis orchids in bloom. The first and third are grown from a seed flask. I bought the second one.

Some tomatoes are still producing, and you can see mango trees with fruit and blooms in the background.

Oh I'm SO jealous Marsha! I've always wanted to grow Passion Flower, but I can't in the north :(. I hope you get lots of butterfly visitors :).
Thanks Linda. It's been a steady stream of zebra longwings and gulf frittilaries. Many GF caterpillars on it right now.
I grow it just for the gulf fritillaries. They keep it pretty well stripped once the weather warms up.
Your passion flower is beautiful, they always make me happy.
