Passiflora Vitifolia, a beautiful Perfumed Passion flower!

I saw this vine flower growing near my sister's school in Mabuhay Street. I immediately guessed that it is a relative of the passion flower but I cannot find similar images in the net. Finally a friend recognized it as a passion flower variety a native to Central and South America. The fruit of the plant is also edible!

  1. I have never seen a red one. Will you please take a full frontal view photograph of the flower? Thank you.

  2. Will try this coming Sunday, hoping the vine is still there.
