Scarlet Passion Flower

Navarre, FL(Zone 8b)

This passion flower bloomed for me here in 2008. It hasn't bloomed again since. Does anyone know what encourages blooms? The vines are growing all over and look very healthy.

I have this variety that grows and blooms every year in my yard, just the red ones won't bloom. :(

Pamela, it WILL bloom - just have to wait until it's ready. I put mine in the ground 4 years ago and this is the first year it is blooming profusely.

I would like to trade for the purple one - looks like Lavendar Lady or purple haze. Dmail me if you'd like to trade!

I've always wanted a red one ( This year I think I'll get one) I have plenty of this one which blooms quite a bit ( passiflora incarna?) I have a big one that went from my trellis to across my fence which was about 10ft. Blooms very nicely summer/fall and the hummingbirds love it!

Iris, the Passiflora you have labeled 'incarnata' is Passiflora caerulea.

My red passion flower bloomed profusely last summer. I just gave it a couple shovelful of compost and always kept it well watered. It gets afternoon shades. It died back in our mild winter and it's coming back already. This is mid February, we're not safe from cold snap just yet so I'm going to protect it. Hope my experience will gets yours to bloom this summer. They're quite a sight when in bloom. They look like my red tropical water lilies.

My vine finally bloomed!! The first picture was Feb 7 and the second was today...We've had a milder winter this year and it grows next to my composter I put there a couple years ago.
