I purchased a passion flower at a local nursury this spring and I want it to last, how do it help it through the winter. I live near bu;ffalo NY and winters can get pretty bad. Can I cut the vines down and take the plant in the house. Please help, i am a new gardener, and would love to make this plant survive. Can I also take cuttings from the original plant to start new ones. I would love to give new plants to family for a gift.
Well, it all depends on what species or hybrid you purchased! Some are hardy like the North-American P.incarnata but most are from tropical Latin America and would have to be overwintered in frost free place. Cuttings usually root pretty easily if you are familiar with cuttings process.
All the best
