We have this gorgeous passionflower vine. It flowers but never fruits. Any thoughts on what could cause it not to fruit? Any tips to make it fruit?

You can try hand pollinating your passionflower.

It seems common for the fancy vines to not produce fruit...
I have wild locally native vines that fruit like mad, but fancier imported ones that I've never noticed fruit on...

Whether its a case of not having the correct pollinators, or having had fruiting bred out of the vine... I can't say...
