After searching for this vine for five years, I finally found it late last summer at Amazon.com. As it turned out, the vine is only available at certain times in the year (from nurseries) and I had been shopping at the wrong time of the year. It came to me as a couple of little short 'sticks' with roots and I nursed it into a few 3 foot vines before planting it next to a pine tree that has been hosting Poison Oak vines. I took my hatchet to the main Poison Oak vine, but the old vines will support this red passionflower. It is the brightest red flower I've even seen around here.

It had to be a winner for you with your penchant for red, Larry.......and what a red!! It's very beautiful, and I can imagine how thrilled you are to have it blooming in your garden:)
I could be green with envy.........but I'll enjoy seeing it here instead:)))

I am surrounded by flowers G√ľnter, but that's the way it is in all of Florida I guess.....probably where you live as well. I rarely get out among people, so flowers is what I have to photograph. Sometimes critters....lots of those too!
