My three passiflora

Passiflora vitifolia

Passiflora vitifolia leaf

Passiflora miniata

Passiflora Edulis

After two long years, my Passiflora Vitifolia finally bloomed. As the name suggests, the leaf has the shape of grape leaves. The "eyelashes" are red in color as opposed to black in the Passiflora Miniata Vandeplank.

The two scarlet passion flowers look alike and were discovered to be different only recently.

The Passiflora Miniata has been flowering profusely but the Vitifolia was slow to bloom. I was keen to see the differences and heard that it had a perfume. Unfortunately, I did not detect as any fragrance coming from it.
