Here is another Passiflora caerulea, taken on 5th June 2010. Climber.


Taken at kanatal (garhwal himalyas alt. 8500ft) on 28.6.08 
Locally called as passion flower 
Would apprecite id


It is a Passiflora species.


This is common passion flower passiflora foetida. It is native of South America, naturalised in India.


Thanks for the feedback.
I don’t think it matches the description of Passiflora foetida. Pl. see the Wikipedia link with pictures for Passiflora foetida: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Passiflora_foetida


Actually the flower looks pretty similar, except the colours (which I think could vary)


The plant looks like Passiflora caerulea (reference: Tropical garden plants by Bose and Choudhry).

I hope Passiflora caerulea


… such conspicuous yellow-orange anthers new to me … ruling out Passiflora incarnata and Passiflora edulis.
Good chance of Passiflora caerulea just as… says.


Passion Flower: This flower was photographed last week in my Garden at Tala Bandhavgarh.
Just thought to share it.

Leaves are important in species identification. Hope you can upload


Thanks … for sharing. That’s why it is also known as Rakhi (Not Sawant) Phool in Hindi belts.


Looks like Passiflora cerulea flowers (old) . Nevertheless, you may send the photographs of the foliage for confirmation.


Isn’t it the same as in – https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!searchin/indiantreepix/passiflora/indiantreepix/PlkHf7iqzk8/M-Phf5ksQRMJ ?


This is Passiflora incarnata and not Passiflora caerulea
The difference in the two can be seen, even without the leaves in the two links here:
