I found a seedling that looks similar to a passiflora seedling. I have passiflora caerulea but it didn't produce seeds last year. I threw out some incarnata seeds that I thought had rotted. Could this seedling be an incarnata? I know its probably too early id.

It looks like passiflora to me too. And, since you threw seeds of P. incarnata, good chance that's what it is.

Did you also throw out Passiflora quadrangularis seeds? Difficult to say which it is until it matures.

Hi Janet, the incarnata were the only ones that I threw out into the flowerbed. I'll post a picture once the plant starts growing more. Thumbs up
