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.
