Last of the Passion Flowers ?


Even though I had been very naughty and had forgotten to water this exotic visitor on our deck .. he managed to scrape through the summer showing off its beautiful detailed flowers. Also making a permanent impression that I should very much make the effort of find one each summer (if not two ?) to entertain hubby with .. they are his soft spot in the plant world : ) I have to confess that it looks to me like a crazy creature snowshoeing on top of the flower .. maybe even a fellow Canuck ?

Hi Louise .. It can only e grown here as an annual .. but my hubby loves it to bits .. so I guess each year it is on the list ! haha
I got this one at Canadian Tire .. but I noticed them at Loblaws and WalMart .. they all had the same idea ! haha

I'm from Canada so all those stores sound familiar to me, but we don't have Canadian Tire or Loblaws here in New York. I will keep an eye out for it at Walmart next year! It's going on my list of plants to get next year!

Hi Louise .. I ust read the post on "Queen of the Night" flower .. I am fascinated by odd plants like that. I know it would be a stretch for you to find a CT or Loblaws ! LOL
But maybe the WalMart might just have some ? Good luck !
