passionflower


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.

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.
