    Description

Passiflora incarnata - Purple Passion Flower

This is a listing for a packet of 5 seeds of this beautiful and hardy climbing plant.

This is a native of the USA, found east of the plains and south of southern shores of the Great Lakes.   Like most other members of its family it is a climber and does so by means of tendrils.  The leaves have 3 - 5 lobes with characteristic glands at the base.  The flowers have 5 petals and 5 sepals aranged around the ovary, which will turn into the passion fruit if pollinated. The flowers also have a distinctive corona of filaments.  The flowers are purple/mauve and have a slightly spicy smell to them - a bit like a sweet wintergreen.  These are followed by the fruit, green at first, but ripening to a golden colour and about the size of a hens egg.  This fruit is edible and is used in jam/jelly and juice production along with the more normal South American types.  The vine will eventually grow up to 4 metres or more, climbing on whatever provides support.

It is hardy in Zones 5 - 11 and tolerates full sun to part shade.  If grown in too rich a soil, it will produce leaves and stems instead of flowers.


Full growing instructions can be downloaded from my website, details of which are on my 'Me' page
