Wild Passion

Talk about a tantalizing title!

One of the wild Passion vines that I found on the bank has finally put out a bloom.

Now I can post the wild flower photo side-by-side with my hybrid I ordered.

The hybrid has 5-lobed leaves, bracts at the petiole, and curlier tendrils.

I found three wild vines on the bank. I have cleared out the weeds around them and staked them.

They seem to be struggling to survive, unlike the potted hybrid.

Typical.  “I’d Rather be a Tall Ugly Weed” (Julio Noboa Polanco)

  1. Bonjour Floweralley, la fleur bleue est magnifique et je me souviens d’en avoir vu en Bretagne lors de vacances. C’est du plus bel effet. Merci 🙂
    Belle journée.
