I grew this from seed but forgot the name ☹️ Any ideas?
Wats this please
Found this on the internet, what plant is it?
A wildflower in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah
What is the ground cover? (Zone 6a)
Couple more in the garden. Any ideas?
We call em Maypops here in southern US
We call them Passion flower here in Southwest US
Oh I hear that too. But when people talk about the fruit here they say maypop instead of passionfruit for some reason.
And the fruit is delicious! Spread it on an English muffin, yummo.
I can't get the vine to grow at my house, but a friend gives me the fruit from theirs on occasion.
I don’t believe that these actually produce fruit. Just amazing flowers.
Well, I guess I’m going to have to have a talk with my vine. That thing is not working to it’s full potential!
Not all of them do sadly.
Some googling suggests if you over fertilize, it may not produce. My yard is a shady clay pit, so I can't get then going at all, but a friend has a wild one that produces every year.
Mine tried to produce last year but it was too late in the season. Our friends in Cali have a whole wall of their fence covered in these, though
It’s because passionfruit is the fruit from passiflora edulis, and maypop is the fruit from passiflora incarnata.
And the southeast. The only part referred to as a maypop is the fruit. Source: Georgia born and raised.
This isn’t the maypop variety. There are tons of Passion flower varieties, and maypop is passiflora incarnata. This is bluecrown Passion flower. Credit: Mississippian growing maypop
Oh nice! The more you know.
Passion flower here in the midwest
Finally! One I knew! We have them in the yard and they are awesome creeper plants to cover up a fence-line.
I can’t find legit seeds. I looked on amazon and they all had terrible reviews
Post: repeat weekly
No amount of sidebar will ever prevent this from getting posted. It's a nice picture, at least!
It’s specifically bluecrown Passion flower Edit: passiflora caerulea
this is kind of random but I wonder if flowers evolved to be pretty and bright so that bees could find them easier and spread more pollen
edit: just googled it and I was right, neat
It's like shampoo, look!
My favorite flower. Here in Philadelphia at the northern limits of its range I see them on occasion
Northern limit? We have them in Seattle...
Probably has to do with its hardiness
Well, yeah, you're literally correct, and I guess what I said was a little misleading.
The United States Department of Agriculture has designated Philadelphia as being in Plant Hardiness Zone 7B, meaning a person could reasonably expect low temperatures in the winter to reach 5 to 10 degrees Fahrenheit, killing off anything else that can't survive colder winters. That's the lowest these plants can survive, I think.
Meanwhile, Seattle, because of it's proximity to the coast, is rated for Zone 8B, with lows between 15 and 20 degrees. Plants from lower-numbered hardiness zones can frequently survive in higher-numbered zones.
Looking at these maps, I suppose its theoretically possible to grow these in the far southern Alaskan Panhandle.
I dont see them in allentown :(
I’ve never seen that before. It’s quite nice.
I have one of these in the UK, is the fruit edible?
I've eaten it before from my garden; not sure if it was fully ripe but it tasted good. Probably needs a good hot summer to ripen the fruit, so maybe this year's a good bet.
No idea if there are different varieties that grow in UK, I didn't exactly have loads so go careful if you're going to try some!
No worries, I was more just wondering than likely to go eat one. I see people put 'passion fruit' in cocktails but I think if they're the same they're alot more ripe. My friend tried one a few years ago and he was fine.

Some varieties of passiflora have fruit that are edible (P. edulis) and some not so much. US east coast natives used P. incarnata fruit in some medicines, but I wouldn't recommend it.
I think one of these plants is the only food for a certain kind of butterfly? Saw that in Texas where friend grew them every year for that purpose.
Yes, it’s true! I can’t remember the butterfly, but I saw an article about bluecrown in California attracting a certain kind of butterfly as it goes through to South America.
