Passiflora trisecta

Manicata
Bolivia 1872
Min -3°C 27°F  July-Aug

Passiflora trisecta is thought to be primarily bat pollinated. The perfumed flowers are fully open by 8pm & closed by 8am. The fruit & seed appeared to develop fully when crossed respectively with Passiflora caerulea & Passiflora ‘Purple Haze’, sadly all the seed were  empty. The fruit have a slighty odd smell..matched by its astringent taste..not recommended.
