I have just ordered 2 passiflora Jeanette plants. Now I'm worried about the possible invasive nature of passiflora. How do you contain yours? Will this monster really grow 30 feet and get out of control? Please advise.
My p_jeanette is pretty well behaved. I keep it in a pot though.
On the other hand, I have a huge incense in a pot and it grew into the ground and when I moved it for the winter it left a few roots and now there are baby ones coming up in the yard lol. That one is invasive!
Calm down, sweetie... ;-)
Passifloras can be tamed just like lions.
Keep her in a three gallon pot, add a small trellis, then keep an eye on her wanderings. Just grab wandering tendrils and weave them back into the trellis.
P. "Jeanette" isn't too vigorous a grower. A very polite passie.
