    P.S.
    And I should have added the information you posted on Google is now the standard of internet search short of buying a $54.00 book.

    Stunningly beautiful flower. I have such a weakness for the red passiflora.

    The thing that amazes me after reading that description is this species’s taxonomic distance from P. manicata, which looks incredible similar (except for the coronal filaments).

    I don’t have the MacDougal Passiflora book with me at work, but if memory serves me, P. manicata is a bird pollinated species and P. miniata is bee pollinated.

    Credit where due: Ulmer and MacDougal write in the English ed. of their passionflower book (2004): “Different forms of P. coccinea seem to exceed the limits of normal variability.” Not the same as sorting it out conclusively, but there has clearly been some suspicion about this species for some time.

    About bees and hornets not whore nets I was actually thrilled to see a yellow black diptera buzzing me on my rear steps as I havent seen any nor have I heard any songbirds nor frogs.
    Silent spring indeed. We wont call any exterminator even if its wasps as the extermination of wildlife is absolutely horrific.
    Flowers will clearly disappear without pollinators and all fruits and berries are doomed as well.

    So I have a question: can you eat the fruits of Passiflora miniata?
