    Passiflora of some sort?

    I get the feeling it's not indigenous.

    Yeah passion vine /maypop is what I found as well , just thought it was strange to find in Va. Or it maybe more common than I think I'll have to keep an eye out to see if I can find more .

    I just did some reading on it and grows as far north as Pennsylvania. The type I found although Deciduous they can handle a freeze . Idk why but I thought they where always tropical plant .

    The seeds are a delicious treat after the pods have ripened.
