Lovely, just lovely!

OK, so now that's done well in the heat of San Diego...uh, wait, San Diego isn't actually too hot though is it? Does anyone know of one of this type of passion vine that might be heat tolerant? I mean really heat tolerant?

AZ, with your heat, Susan Brigham or Coral Glow would be your best bets of the long tubed type. I had the Coral Glow when I lived in Escondido. We often had temps over 100 and it did well for me but it must be in the ground to do so.

Thanks Mark, I'll be keeping my eye out for those next year when I'm shopping online. I have few plants not in the ground so that's not a problem.

Maricopa county, PHX metro area.

Marie, no guarantee on the heat although these will probably represent your best chance, but they should do to freezing in the cold. Remember, in the ground would be best for them.
