Space Age Flower

We were walking along S. First yesterday when we noticed the unusual space age blossoms on this vine. I'm not much of a botanist, but the bees seemed to recognize it.


  1. Wow that's cool! It almost looks like the passion flower....

  2. It is a passion flower -- passiflora caerulea. There's an interesting story about the origin of the plant's name at (in the October 18 blog post).

  3. that is a beautiful flower.. what a wonderful picture. I never coulda got so close to those bees. I am allergic , but they look wonderful in the pic.
