Rare Flower Blooms: Can You Identify It?

During a long summer walk in Hilton Head I came across this unusual looking bloom.
This flower is one of the most beautiful, vivid and strangest things I've ever seen. But it may be more common than I think it is -- especially in the South.
I wonder if anyone can identify it.

This is called a passion flower (passiflora incarnata) or also known as maypop :)

Thank you so much for identifying it. Is it considered rare?
