passiflora suberosa

Hudson, FL

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.
Thanks!

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