The hardiest and most popular Passion Flower is the Blue Passion Flower from South America. The complex flowers are borne in abundance and come in a striking colour combination of white and green, zoned with blue, purple and white. With plenty of sun, this superb climber will produce yellow or orange fruit in late summer to autumn. Best grown against a warm, sheltered wall away from cold winds, and as such makes an ideal plant for a courtyard garden. In cold areas, protect the roots in winter and it will regrow every year. Although germination can be erratic, Passiflora are easy to raise from seed, very vigorous and do well in pots.

GROWING GUIDE

Sowing Instructions: Sow at any time of the year and as soon as possible after receipt. Sow in pots at a depth of 6mm into a good free draining damp seed compost, seal in a polythene bag and maintain at about 21C. Keep the compost moist, but not over wet. Germination can take anywhere from 7 days to 3 months. If any seed still haven’t germinated after 3 months, transfer the container in its bag to the fridge for a further 3 months. Check regularly for germination and remove from the fridge immediately if it does occur. After 3 months return the container to 21C and germination should occur.

Growing Instructions: When seedlings are large enough to handle, pot up individually into 7.5cm pots and grow on in a coldframe (in summer, in a shady place as cool as possible), and plant out 30cm apart the following spring in moist, loamy soil. For young plants (>3 yrs), and in cold regions, protect from frost with a mulch/fleece.
