That is beautiful! My Grandpa showed me a Maypop, they grew out in the woods, I didn't think it was real, it was so perfect. I have seed that I need to plant. Seeing your beautiful Maypop is the nudge I need.

Is that the same as Passion Flower vine? I have seen those growing wild in the woods only one time. Would love to have one in my yard.

Yes maypops are a passiflora (passion vine) but not all passiflora are hardy to my area, maypops are and this is a native vine, seed harvested from a native.

Been doing a little research on passiflora, seems like the plant grown from seed doesn't ness. form a true to parent flower. I had a few plants grow this year so I may get different flowers from each, how exciting.

Oh so pretty! I have one of those in a pot!! It has buds. Can't wait for it to bloom especially after seeing yours.
Any special care you give it?
Thanks.

This is my first so I don't know. The research I did said it has shallow roots and does better w/ mulch. It doesn't like to dry out completely, but no standing water either.
