I still buy new passionflowers whenever I get the chance.
Some of them haven’t been blooming a lot (I’ll just blame the weird, cold summer we’ve been having), but when they do, it’s fantastic.
Wilgen K. Verhoeff (which the tag spells as ‘Verkoeff’, but Google suggests that’s wrong):
The leaves in the background, by the way, belong to Passiflora trifasciata, which has a lot less impressive flowers:
It blooms frequently, but only in the mornings, so I rarely see the flowers. I actually took the picture at work, on one of the plants I brought in to sell. (We even had one customer come in this year and ask for them (I’d brought some last year, too), which was pretty awesome for me.)
My most reliable bloomer – which has flowers pretty much every day, even if they’re small, is Passiflora citrina:
Passiflora aurantia is not quite such a constant bloomer, but still quite reliable. To be honest, though, I don’t really find it pretty. Just interesting and unusual.
And lastly, Passiflora murucuja, which blooms a bit less often than P. aurantia (or maybe I just don’t notice it as much, because the flowers are usually rather high up). Another one with rather small flowers, but so pretty.
‘Amethyst’ looks like it’s going to bloom any day now (it sure took it’s time, but as I said, I’m blaming the weather), but ‘Sapphire’ (which I love a lot more than ‘Amethyst’ just keeps aborting buds… I don’t know what’s going on there…
