That is gorgeous. How often does it typically bloom? I can see why you would want to protect it. Great job.

This is my 1st year growing it so have only had 3 blooms.

Many yrs ago I grow this from seeds I took back from Keukenhof gardens 6 germinated so I gave 5 to friends and kept 1 and sadly I lost it as It got frosted as I forgot to protect.

I love Passion Flowers! So far, I've only seen them in pictures, never in person, but they always amaze me with their unique beauty. I like how detailed they are, I feel that I could look at them for hours without getting bored:)

That's a really beautiful flower :) I had never seen a flower like that in my entire life! It's really beautiful, a bit minimalistic, but really beautiful :)

It is a beautiful flower. I love the taste of the passion fruit, it is so tropical. They are so exotic. They grow native in the southeastern part of the US.

I don't remember ever seeing such a variety of designs in one flower. It's outstanding and I'd love to have an opportunity to get creative with photographing one of those. Sadly there are so many candidates and so little time.

What do passion fuit taste like? Could you try to describe it? Are they sweet? I'm curious, because I've never eaten them. I'm not even sure what do they look like.
I think that I saw somewhere passion fruit flavored candies, but I didn't buy them.

I'm no good at describing tastes, but they're a fruit with a hard black skin which is full of small black pips coated in orange flesh. You eat the pips.

When I saw the name passion flower on this thread I didn't associate it with the granadilla (passion fruit). I just recalled that I tried growing a granadilla plant once, but I kept it indoors and it died. I never got to see the flowers so I didn't realise that it was such a beautiful plant. Now I think I'll have to try again.

Hmm, looking at the picture in this search, I see that the fruit aren't always black. That's two things I've learnt today.

I have never seen this plant before. The flower is very intriguing. Do the flowers come in other colorations or just what's pictured? Is it a delicate plant or pretty hardy?

In the link I added to my previous post there are flowers in a variety of colours.

From what scotkat has said it sounds like the plant is frost sensitive.

It's a pleasure. I try to help when I can. Unfortunately most of my gardening knowledge is related to bonsai but that flower was so beautiful I had to look it up. I wish I had room for one of those in my little greenhouse, but it's so full that in winter I can't even get inside without moving some plants out first.

OMG-I have just said the same thing in another thread! I love this flower but haven't seen one or grow one yet. I don't think I can do either one as I live in Michigan and our warm weather is only last a few months!

This is such a beautiful flower and very fascinating looking. Did you grow this from seed or from plant? I would love to have a try this year, and will be starting to look around for them.
