Passiflora holosericea, seen here growing at Kew Gardens. This is plant that likes it really hot and even does well in India. It is difficult plant if it is being grown in conditions far from its norm. Likes to be kept dry winter & summer as it grows in arid areas. Some varieties develop corky bark when older & will produce up to 8 flowers on one peduncle. Beautiful almost luminous velvety leaves.
