Passion Vine Pollen
Passion Vine anthers are located above the expected nectar location. In our garden the most frequent pollinator of these passion vines is the carpenter bee. These large black bees are often coated on their backs with pollen from the Passion Vine as they search for nectar. And the next flower in turn is pollinated when these bees contact the sticky pistils located between the anthers.
