    The net says zone 6-10 dependent on the species.

    Forth pic, last set, ya'll are calling it Passion flowers. It's the varaiety name for the one I photographed and posted. That's eccentric. I had a pic of passion flower too to compare but it was out of focus. Lighter in color and not nearly as big, Dan calls eccentric passion flower on steroids and that's a great way to describe it.

    The dark purple is Passiflora 'Incense'. Maypop is Pasiflora incarnata. 'Incense' is one of the more cold tolerant passifloras. My original cutting came from Kansas in a trade.

    I'll be happy to trade my waterlilies for Passion flowers an elephant ears I do not have.

    If any one is close enough to come get them, I'll give them to you.

    I would like to purchase or trade for viviparous lily pads of varieties I do not have? If any one has any please let me know.
