Native Passion Flower

We have planted and enjoyed Passion Flowers (passiflora) in Eva's garden for years. Some of the varieties came from Russia. To our surprise and pleasure we found that the pasture we converted into a berry patch had Texas native Passion Flowers growing wild. The went away after we plowed, but some spread into the bull paddock across the road. The photos below are of our special flowers growning on vines with the blackberries. They are hardy and survived all we did to establish the berry patch. The Passion Flower is an easy to grow vine, comes back every year, and has the most unusual of flowers.
