A vigorous, tendril vine with very fragrant and large red flowers! The vines will gently twine around supporting structures. In tropical climates, it will flower all year round. It is an exotic tropical that is sure to draw attention, and is ideal planted around a patio where onlookers can see it's magnificent flowers!

In Canada, many Passion Flowers are not hardy over winter (especially the ones with the red coloration), so we grow those varieties in pots and take them indoors for the winter months, and grow them in a sunny window! Note, if you are from a colder climate, you may also be interested in the Hardy Blue Passion Flower that we offer!

Hardiness zones: 9-11

Type: Climbing Vine

Location: Sun or part sun

Note: Ornamental use only. Many plants have poisonous parts, these included. Minor toxicity.

Seeds per pack: 3

Germination: Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. For best results, obtain a sterile seed-start mix, and place the seeds just under the surface of the pre-moistened growing medium. Keep moist until germination, which can take about 4-6 weeks, with some seeds taking slightly longer. You can cover the container with clear plastic if you wish, to retain moisture until germination. Once seeds emerge, place in a sunny place outdoors if temperatures permit.
