I believe it is Passiflora caerulea.  To be honest I did not think it would do much of anything in this climate and we lost the tag and the place we bought it at has closed .
Its aroma is like honeysuckle and a grape cool aid packet combined.  
I never realized how many varieties there are! https://tinyurl.com/y3efaxfn

Well i started this Passionflower from a stalk 2 years ago in the spring (possibly 12 inches tall).  At the end of the summer we got 3 flowers for the year. Without any help from me it wintered over fine and continued to grow and this summer it has gone bonkers. There must have been 20-30 flowers already and its climbing ability has been tremendous (vertically and horizontally). I am hoping for some fruit at some point.

This is a real hand of Gin and Art Ludwig was the clincher.

Chiming in late in know.... if you need to build  a greenhouse or need windows for anything check the dumpsters behind these replacement glass businesses.
All kinds of frames, hardware, good non thermal glass and so on.

I was not sure where to post this since it is not Permaculture farming but it does in a way deal with farming on many levels.

Well it appears they were having currency conversion problems with the Australian to USA $$$ so they went with: Indegogo instead of Kickstarter.

Just to show that I can be a total dumba$$, I must ask where is the voting page? Or how do you vote?
Here is a page where you can download readings of Rudolf Steiner's lectures. Just left click on the "book" and it will download however you tell it to. I just click on the top entry and it downloads them all instead of downloading each chapter individually. There are many "religious" books but also some good ones on Bees and agriculture (mostly for this forum). I suppose if you want to blow your mind, buy some duct tape and wrap your head before listening to some of the other "spiritual" works.
