Alien Flower


Does anybody know the name or anything about this flower? It is growing in our back yard.

I have several of these vines in my backyard. It's called the Passion Vine. You might also see colorful orange butterflies around it - they are called Gulf Fritillaries and the Passion Vine is their host plant.

OH! Thank you! It also has this pod like "fruit" that appears later.
I will have to look for the butterflies! Thanks!

The fruits are edible, we have one also. I cannot wait for it to ripen. They are fantastical flowers!
