This is the very first Passion Flower to bloom this season. It’s done that just today.

This particular plant is on an arbour anchored in two 50cm pots planted in there a mere couple of months ago. Both pots have the home-grown passiflora taken from the mother plant which had produced so many “children.” I have given a lot of them away to friends and family. I hope they too will enjoy this marvel before too long.

    The passion flowers have a unique structure, which in most cases requires a large bee to effectively pollinate. In the American tropics, wooden beams are mounted very near passionfruit plantings to encourage carpenter bees to nest. The size and structure of flowers of other Passiflora species is optimized for pollination by hummingbirds (especially hermits like Phaethornis), bumble bees, wasps or bats, while yet others are self-pollinating…^..;
