I live in central Florida and am going to plant a passilfora suberosa that is about 6 inches tall.
What kind of soil mixture does it like - compost, sand, etc? Also, can it take full morning sun
till noon and then mostly shade rest of day? Is it a slow grower? I understand the zebra butterfly prefers this particular passifora to lay its eggs on - is that true? Any information would be helpful.

In some places this is considered a weed so I don't think you will have problems growing it. :)

And from this page:

Moist forests and pinelands.

Moist, well-drained sandy or limestone soils, with or without humusy top layer.

Drought Tolerance:
High; does not require any supplemental water once established.

Light Requirements:
Light shade to full sun.

Sounds like your spot is just perfect for it.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
