I planted a vine with white and purple. It was a much smaller flower than I was used to. I lost my original in a freeze, unusual in coastal Texas. Which Passion flower should I have purchased to replace the vine attractive to Gulf Frillary Butterflies i lost? Susan

Passiflora lutea, Passiflora incarnata, and Passiflora foetida and others are all attractive to Gulf Fritillary butterflies. Passiflora incarnata is probably the most common in gardens and has large purple flowers. If that's not the one- there are over 200 passion flower species, but the flower colors and appearances can help you find the one you had.
