: I'd say that it's either a passion vine or a clematis; I'll post a pic of the former.
: : I have pictures of a beautiful tropical-looking plant with huge beautiful purple blooms, that I need help in identifying, please! It grows in Southern Indiana and is blooming now, but only lasts a few days. It multiplies and grows best in the more shady areas. The leaves on it grow in a semi-circle of five leaves, the stem is speckled and has layers like petals, the blooms are about 2 ft. long in total w/seed pod at bottom of the bloom. Please help, I'm dying to know what this is. Thanks for any info.
No, it's not the passion vine you posted or clematis, it is a deep plum purple and the blooms are huge. I can't figure out how to post the pic or I would. Help!
