Strange flowering weeds/vines
#1
These grow and bloom in the backyard here in SC.. I have absolutely no clue what the name of this plant is..but it's kind of unique. 
Any horticulturists out there? Almost looks like it's made from spare parts. lol

That is strange. Looks almost like someone mixed a flowering plant with kudzu.

I found out that it's actually the passion flower.. And is actually sought after by certain researchers. I might start propagating them to sell . You never know what profits might lurk among the  weeds in the backyard. lol

"Native Americans traditionally used P. incarnata for its sedative and anxioltyic properties, in addition to eating the sweet fruit. These medicinal uses have been expanded upon in recent years, with P. incarnata extracts being shown to treat withdrawal symptoms and exhibit an aphrodisiac effect,"




Send me some seeds.

Are you sure its not Hogsweed or Wild Parsnip?  I've heard if you break the stems and rub the oil on your skin, you'll get a nice tan.

Whatever you do, do not fall to sleep around any of these flowers...especially if you have a dog with you.

Hogweed is on the big time invasive species list.
Quote:North Carolina Agriculture Agent Chad Taylor has seen several patches of the toxic Giant Hogweed in recent weeks, but nothing like the one found in Blowing Rock on Thursday.



“This is the biggest I’ve seen,” Taylor said. He’s been on the lookout for the plant because of its toxic nature.


A tip led him to the back yard of a local home. The sap can cause big trouble to humans and pets.


“It can cause third-degree burns,” said Taylor. “In some cases, it can cause blindness.”
Nasty plant you really don't want growing in your neighborhood..much worse than poison ivy..

If you run across the plant report it to local authorities 

or if you don't mind risking your freedom bag it up and ship it to
3400 South Water Street.

Attention : Team snacks enclosed.. 

(don't actually do this as it's really illegal and stuff)
