passiflora pfordtii tiger (purple tiger)
I ordered this little gem from Aloha Tropicals. It didn't take its journey from California too well, having been squashed in virtual darkness in a box for 7 days. Heck, even I would turn blue! But with a little tlc from moi, the pretty little thing started to bounce back to health. Within a week, it looked like it was ready to take on the fence! Anyway, it is now doing better than I am and has more or less acclimatised to our searing heat and choking humidity! Hopefully, it would start to produce the beautiful blooms so that I have something new to show off.
