First decent frost last night down to 25F.  One of my projects I’m starting to get into is Passiflora breeding.  Here is a combo of plants that looks nice together right now: babington leek and a P. tucumanensis hybrid.

Photos of the flower from a few weeks ago.  Unfortunately this seedling doesn’t accept incarnata pollen, despite being 1/4 incarnata.  It appears to have some pollen but it’s a bit sticky and I haven’t tested its fertility.

Zone 7a, mid Atlantic bio region.  There are some nice looking complex hybrids with Passiflora incarnata, cincinnata, and edulis.  Most all should be zone 7 hardy.  I like this one. Won’t be able to try the fruit till next year.
