Here's a comparison of my Passiflora edulis 'Frederick' from when it was planted July 28, 2010 and today, June 16, 2011. Looks happy!


I counted at least 38 new flowers which opened today. I saw this flower being worked over by a honeybee. I don't know if the bee was actually getting pollen to the stigma and being an effective pollinator, but it did have quite a bit of pollen on it's back and that's a good sign.

I have this 'weed' vine thingy that grows in the back yard from time to time, and each time I trim it back, it always regrows. Never really knew what it was except an annoying weed. Well, after looking at all these passion flower photos, I notice that it MUST be a passion flower of some sort since it is a dead ringer form some of the light purple ones posted here. There is a major difference however, the blooms on the one in my backyard are between the size of a quarter and a half-dollar, and never any larger than that. The fruit that I've seen is generally the size of a grape or smaller. In spite of the small size, it is identical to many of your pics. I'll have to take a photo next time it blooms with a coin in the pic for size comparison. Nice to finally know what the 'weed' is even if I don't know what type.

I guess I have enough old logs or whatever around here that I've got some carpenter bees without having to do anything to encourage them. I planted a 'Frederick' passionfruit vine last July and this year it's large enough to put out a lot of flowers. I did some hand pollination last week but today the vine had over 100 flowers open up. I'm glad I saw this bee show up to do the work for me. I did see a paper wasp chase the carpenter bee away a couple of times. I wish I could get rid of the wasps for good.

The tendrils were what annoyed me most since they were winding around some of my other plants, and that is why I started cutting the buggar back all the time. I've so far been unable to kill it though; it is a stubborn plant once established.

We have found that using a floral spray of 1/2 cup of malasses, 1 tbsp of liquid detergent and orange oil, if you can get it, will keep the hopper away. Thay cannot digest sugar and will either leave of die. Works for us as we had a multitude of them last year but very few now.
