I will try to find your flower in my books..In the mean time..86 the bullfrogs,they eat all native species,they eat all
pond life that they can,they are a pest species and cause environmental devistation of all other frogs,they endanger
native frog and toad survival,scientists worry they will make
all native frogs and toads extinct..Get rid of them they are bad bad all the way around!

It is passionflower vine which is very aggressive. I had one go up a ten foot fence into an orange tree and down a shrub for a total of about 80 feet in half a summer. From the backyard to the front all the way to the street.
