Is this a Passiflora lutea? I have several in my front flowerbed. Since we just moved in June, I have not seen a mother plant. Thanks

Might be... or maybe a moonseed... Looks too stout to be a wild cucumber....

Could you stand farther back, and include the other vine(s)?

Seems like there should be better growth...

Of course.... maybe the previous tenant kept it cut back... are you in a drought?

It really does resemble Wild Yellow Passion Flower (Passiflora lutea)

More images for comparison:

I'll try to get another pic tomorrow. Rained a good part of the day today so not in a drought. The flowerbeds were completely weeded last April. This, briars and other suckers were removed about the time we moved in.

Yeah, I googled kerrville after posting.... Looks like excellent gardening weather... Try googling my weather :(

Either moonseed or passiflora could be making a slow recovery after having been pulled out earlier this year... But with the rain y'all are getting Ida expected more growth than we're seeing in the pic.
