Passion Flower

My mother's yard is filled with some amazing plants. This is one of my favorites - the passion flower. This one is the Passiflora "Incense." It grows like a weed and is very heat tolerant. I've seen these in South Texas at Dena Wenmoh's Art Ranch Retreat near Marble Falls, but had no idea they could grow this far north until I visited Mom out at the farm last weekend. Her yard was filled with them! My Aunt Bitsy is going to bring me a cutting from Mom's house. I made her promise not to tell Carlos that this is going to take over our entire backyard. I can hardly wait.
