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 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. In the rare white Passion Flower, all flower parts are pure white except the anthers which are butter yellow. When the icy white flowers are seen against the kelly green leaves, you just might think about lime sherbet...Although this plant is tougher than nails once established, it is sometimes difficult to establish. We strongly recommend late spring planting.
