The passion fruit vine is supposed to be a heat tolerant, fast grower hear in the desert. It does grow quickly, which is good, because the vine has been attacked twice by voracious caterpillars. A type of fritillary butterfly lays eggs on the leaves and before long...

The vine looks like this - or worse!

This is what the flower looks like when its not being eaten by hungry caterpillars.
