Passiflora "Berkley" getting ready to bloom.

Possibly my most reliable passiflora is "Berkley" and it's not even cold hardy! I have it planted in the same pot as my Solandra Maxima and I had no problems with it during the winter indoors. It just sat there and did nothing, it didn't grow and it didn't die. Then when it went outside for the summer it started growing very quickly again. Now it's got a ton of buds that are ready to open any day!

Here's a pic from this afternoon...
And here's a pic of the bloom last year…
I think anyone trying to bring the tropics to there yard should grow passiflora vines! The flowers are so complex and beautiful.
