Has anyon had any luck with flowering and fruiting Passifloras indoors? I live up north (zone 4) but have a really sunny window, and could put plants outdoors in the summer.

Yes, they will bloom if given enough light. They won't fruit unless the flowers are pollinated - do you have insects in your house? If no pollinators are available, don't expect fruit/seeds.

Unfortunately I do have insects in the house (cluster flies and ladybugs), but I guess I could always use a paint brush!

I'm sure a paint brush will do fine. Also a Qtip!

Are there any varieties that are especially good for growing in pots?

YES - they are great container plants:

Here's a great article on growing Passiflora:

Lorli,

There are many passiflora that grow very fast that perhaps would not be good indoors however there are sellers that will put you onto a good houseplant like this one here;

Quickly in the descriptions of plants I found these;

Passiflora reflexiflora

Passiflora ‘Belotii’

Passiflora aurantia
