Passion Flower

I was looking back through some older photos to get the botanic name for this beauty and I noticed something interesting. The first flower from this vine on the site is a lot more purple. I can only assume that is from the shady cool conditions we try to keep in the back yard. I'm sure he was in bright sunlight in the nursery and probably got just the right nutrients to bring out those beautiful colors. But I think I like the variegated look even more! And since I regularly have to untangle this guy from all of the other plants in the back yard I think he is pretty happy with the arrangement too.

Passion Vine

This is from one of the vines in my back yard. I really like the little tendrils this vine puts out to climb on things. You would think nothing could stop it. Of course, the butterflies that we got this to attract have almost done it in. When it comes back it comes back with a vengeance but I think I am going to have to get it some friends before the next invasion of butterflies.
