I'm not sure if this flowering vine is one species of Passiflora mollissima (a.k.a. P. tripartita), whose common name is banana poka, part of the passion fruit family (Passifloraceae). Its unwieldy vines can cause considerable damage to the ecosystem and its native habitat. On our recent hike, we came across these invasive killers placing a strangle hold on sandalwood and koa trees.
