This tiny passiflora was blooming in Cornell's Liberty Hyde Bailey Greenhouse (now sadly closed due to its deteriorating condition) last February. The elaborate flower pictured here was only about the size of a dime.

I love passiflora! Do you know what kind this was?

Hi Hunter! Yes, it was most likely Passiflora suberosa, or some hybrid thereof. I love passiflora too, I wish they could grow perennially in this area.
