Plant Description

Words cannot describe the beauty of the Passion Flower, a perennial vine climbing with tendrils. Flowers are heavily sweet-scented, 2- to 3-inches wide, and combine white, green, blue, and purple. They have exotic floral appendages, protrusions, and frills. Given a dry, sunny location, and a fence or trellis to climb on, these vines will flourish and flower from July to October. Although this plant is aggressive and tougher than nails once established, it is sometimes difficult to establish. We strongly recommend late spring or summer planting. In addition to the intricately structured flowers, Passion Flower also produces tasty lime-shaped fruits used in making ice cream and jelly. Passion flower is also a host plant for the larvae of several butterflies including the gulf fritillary and the zebra longwing.
