|I am sending you these photos of our passiflora vine here in Savannah, Georgia in hopes that your collective botanical wisdom may have some insight about what is attacking the leaves and flower buds. We recently had great success using ladybugs to complete eradicate aphids on a nearby hibiscus, but can see no evidence of aphids on the passiflora. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated!

|Looks like leaf miners. You don't seed insects because they are in the leaf, not on the leaf.

|Agree. The caterpillars of gulf fritillary butterflies also use this plant as host. You might see some orange caterpillars with black spikes. If so, they will soon turn into gulf fritillary butterflies.
