Passiflora caerulea (Large Plant)

Passiflora, Granadilla, Passion flower

Hardy Perennial

Snow white petals crowned with an explosion of purple filaments. The exotic blooms of Passiflora caerulea are followed by inedible egg-shaped, orange passion fruits that make a spectacular feature in late summer. Vigorous and easy to grow, these tropical climbers are always rewarding for their sheer flower power. Height: 10m (32'). Spread: 2m (6').

Culinary note: The fruits of passiflora are edible, albeit somewhat unremarkable in taste. They can be used in preserves and desserts. P. edulis, grown under glass will produce the best fruit for eating. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Plant Passion flower plants into any moist, well drained soil. Choose a sunny position that is protected from cold winds in winter. Prior to planting, add plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil. When growing passion flower, be sure to provide the twining stems with an appropriate support such as trellis or wires attached to fences and pergolas.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season. In autumn, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant. Pruning Passion flowers is best undertaken in spring. Prune out the oldest stems, and reduce the remaining stems to restrict their vigorous growth to the available space.
