Passion

Last weekend we went down to North Haven Gardens after attending the Collin County Garden Show – I had learned that they had passionflower vines in stock – and I was determined to get one. We had set up a makeshift trellis at the south end of our storage barn utilizing some leftover T-posts and a piece of livestock panel – certainly not the most fashionable work, but definitely functional. The goal was to have it covered in vines with alien-like flowers anyway!

I had been in love with passionflowers and their odd beauty – remembering a neighbor’s home down the street that had a passion vine roaming along the backyard fence. They were a definite must for adding to the landscaping here – I was thrilled to finally get some into the ground.

Today we were rewarded with blue crown passionflower (Passiflora caerulea)  blooms!
