Passionflower vines are considered invasive weeds by some. They do produce suckers, but they are intolerant of regular mowing. If there are Zebra Longwings, Gulf Fritillaries, or Julias in the area, the vines' vigorous growth is appreciated - the caterpillars can chow down and the vines will still have leaves.
Plants of the passionflower family, Passifloraceae, provide striking flowers, edible fruit, and host butterflies.
