"Extra" Lagniappe (or is that redundant?)
I took a cutting of this purple passiflora from a large vine growing near RR tracks near my house. It had a bud on it, which I did not expect to open, but bloom it did, exuding a lovely, sweet fragrance. I will plant it near a green-tinged one I have. Passifloras are easy to root, just take a cutting, put it in water in a sunny window. They can be a bit pushy in the garden, but are not too hard to control.
