Another host plant - this one for the Gulf Fritillary. Passionvine. This one isn't the native variety (though it is native to South America, so it could easily have found its way here eventually); I believe this one is Blue Passionvine. The Fritillaries don't care. To them, it's just food. Beware - as with most passionvines, it can be a bit invasive and spreads most by roots - surprisingly I've found that this one spreads by roots, but will pop up like 3' away from the mother plant.
