Is there any passiflora which are famous for flowering within 1 year of growing from seed and fragrant too? I have heard there are some cultivars which flowers early.

I am in zone 10 and our summers are cruel hot around 110F constant temps May-July. I intend to grow them in a large clay pot.

In my experience the following can take blazing hot sun as long as it's watered regularly and bloomed the first year for me from seed.

Passie foetida var. gossypifolia

Passiflora rubra

Passiflora trifasciata Tri-color

I had an Arida that bloomed in just a couple months from seed.
