"Raspberry Strudel"

I'm really excited about this plant blooming!!!! It is a hybrid of Mr. Jim Nevers (an ebay seller of passion flowers whom I 100% recommend anyone to buy from)! Very few gardeners have this plant as of yet (he told me I am the second person to own it)!
He says.... the seed came fro Volker Sanders of Germany. Mr. Sanders crossed P. 'Annette' with P. 'Incarnata'. It flowers year round with only a few breaks. The petals and sepals are pink - filaments are magenta speckled with white. Has a sweet fragrance. No fruit.

It really is a beauty! Strange pink color... especially since I'm use to seeing only purple and red passion flowers!!!!
