One of these days I need to take a bunch of photos of the in-progress landscaping around my tiki build. But I'll share this now because I have it handy--I love passiflora, as I've stated earlier. Years ago, I traded for some exotic seeds. This plant grew from one of those. Through moves and neglect and other events, I lost it's ID and almost killed it more than once. It never flowered, but always came back from my abuse. The other day I was startled to find a half-dozen unexpected blooms by it. Turns out it's p. serratifolia. Not as free-flowering as more common types, but quite pretty, no?

We get something similar growing wild all around our house. The locals call it wild apricot or passionflower.

There are many varieties of pitcher plants (nepenthes) from Madagascar to New Guinea.I bought this one from the “Sick Bay” shelves at my local Lowe’s Hardware.I won’t know what I have til I get new Pitchers. I cut off the worst of the plant, watered it and it looked much better this morning. We’ll see what it looks like in the spring. interesting “conversation plant for a bright spot in your patio (no direct sun) No,don’t try the liquid that’s in the picther in a cocktail.

Before cleanup
