Passion Vine Plant

When my husband and I bought our home over a year ago, a beautiful passion vine plant was planted in the back yard by the previous owner(s) of the house. We enjoy the passion vine plant as it produces an abundant of purple flowers from Spring to Fall. Also, the plant attracts swarms of caterpillars that eventually turn into Monarch butterflies. It is not uncommon for our backyard to be covered with many butterflies flying around from early Spring to late Fall. We have many Passion Vine plants that sprout up in various sections in our  backyard. Most recently, my husband built a wooden trellis around our air conditioning unit, so the Passion Vine plant would not grip around our air conditioning unit causing potential harm to the unit.

Here are some pictures of the Passion Vine plant(s):
