..... the quest to find one that had a chance of being hardy in our zone, that was the clincher ? .. so after reading Kathleen's post I went looking once again and came upon this one at a regular haunt of mine "Veseys Seeds" in P.E.I. which is Prince Edward Island in our maritime provinces for those who don't know our geography here in the Great White North (rather all beige and brown now) .. in any case .. the bottom picture is the version of the "Maypop" passion flower that I have ordered .. along with .. OK .. Rose, you are going to find out I broke our pact with the "no buying seeds this year promise" .. Rose .. I couldn't help myself .. looking at Veseys SEEDS .. well .. it happened .. I bought some really cute mini sunflower seeds and my favorite Cosmos (Sonata) .. so I confess .. I broke the pact.
This one looks more exotic than the annual one I had last summer ! .. Fingers crossed the great experiment works .. I won't know until next Spring if it has .. but that is what gardening is all about .. we HOPE for the future and learn from the past (almost always that is) .. in the mean time we plan, and plan, and then follow through, as much as we can !!
