they would have made great medals wouldnt they! spectacular flowers
glad you grow them!

Interesting is, I have never seen these flowers before until I saw this polytunnel. How did you come to idea to grow this plant, Steve?

13 Aug, 2012

 

I have had a few on my trellis Kat, but they were always late in the season and not that many flowers. This despite facing S/SW on a wall. So they need heat to get going and here they have plenty : )

They are tropical plants?

South America, America Asia, Australia, all over i belive

Just had a look on the net , apparently an unwanted invasive species in New Zealand!

It can overgrow the polutunnel then, lol. There was such a film in Czechoslovakia long time ago -some form of sci fi comedy for adults. Its title was Adele Did not have a Dinner Yet. And it was about similar plant, which liked to eat people, when the music started to play, lol. Be careful :))

The passions doing really well now.......now where's the ahhh shot?!

14 Aug, 2012

 

ok ok, let me get me coat off ; )

Are you getting edible fruits too Steve?

14 Aug, 2012

 

What do they taste like?

14 Aug, 2012

 

No no fruits at all Meanie, not sure how you get them as never had them!

14 Aug, 2012

 

Think they look sort of like an elongogated peach.....

14 Aug, 2012

 

I've seen fruit before in the UK but not around here, that was on the south coast

14 Aug, 2012

 

But surely...in the poly tunnel....

ah i need to self pollinate apparently and with a different plant so will go out with my brush and see what might happen. i guess even though many flowers have opened, they only open for a day and I need a bee to go from one plant to another, lets try

14 Aug, 2012

 

cross pollinating that would be fun!!

you can use a feather too cant you?

14 Aug, 2012

 

probably grab the paintbrush : )

14 Aug, 2012

 

so long as you dont paint them a different colour!

be a bit like the dye / ID they put on sheep???

14 Aug, 2012

 

I have an image of Stevie tickling passion flowers making them giggle! Oh I wish I was a cartoonist!

15 Aug, 2012

 

I think you can't do it off of the same plant so had flowers on either side of the door and just kept switching, we'll wait n see!
