Anyone growing 'Black Knight'? I have one that I got from Raintree Nursery last year, and it has produced exactly one flower in two seasons now. I suspect it is not the real 'Black Knight', but a seedling. Raintree is the only online nursery I know of that sells it, but I don't trust them now. There are a number of nurseries in California that do sell the real 'Black Knight', but none do mail order. I'm hoping that someone on here has the real BK from one of these nurseries, and can send me cuttings. Another option would be for someone to buy one from one of these nurseries and send it to me.

This superlative genus offers more than species, most native to tropical America. Maypop, P. S along with a few other species. Every aspect of these vines will knock your socks off, from their Daliesque flowers to their singular fruit. Plant a passion vine and head for cover before you are lost in an evocation of its steamy, lush jungle origin. To 20 feet or more in one season under optimal conditions, with flowering spring through fall.
