Gardeners' Notes:

The large flowers are what really distinguishes this from the bog-standard Blue Passionflower, so you should only buy a plant that's in flower (a good rule anyhow!). The flowers should be 10cm (4") across or over.

Again, this plant doesn't flower well in the UK unless the summer is sunny. It survives most winters, but can take a long time to recover if damaged to ground level. Planted by a SW wall near a patio will help it a lot.

It's a wonderful plant, but ---- think, if it was as hardy and wonderful as the traders tell us, why doesn't everyone in the UK grow it???? Eh???

I so envy all the US grdeners for being able to grow them so well!

I received this plant on Mothers Day 2011. I planted it in a container, andI brought it indoors last winter; I live in Ohio. I went to prune it back this March and discovered another small plant growing in the container. I dug it out, replanted it, and took it outside. It proceeded to wilt so I brought it back in and placed it in a glass with a small amount of water. After it got a bunch of roots on it I replanted it and took it back outside where it is thriving. It is soon to out grow the pot I put it in. As I was watering the mother plant today (6/22/12) I noticed another plant coming up through the soil. When it gets big enough I will pull it out, put it in water, and wait for the roots to form. From one plant I will now have 3.

I love this Passion Vine but so do the caterpillars. I have lost several of these because as soon as I plant them the caterpillars eat them to the point that they have not recovered. Like my husband tells me though, if you want to have butterflies you have to have caterpillars.

Planted as 1 gallon in Oct by June was 10' by 10'. Planted on block wall with a south face. Gulf butterfly loves plant. Blooms better than Lady Lavender Passion vine and in June covered in blossoms. Plant is mixed in with snap dragons so it gets extra water 1 gallon/day in summer.

Growing this in UK, very rampant indeed, needs pruning regularly. A great addition to a tropical garden. I live in zone 9a so it is evergreen year round but in zones 8 and below it tends to be deciduous.

An unbelievable tetraploid developed by Roland Fischer in Germany in 2001. The same vigor and hardiness as the standard Blue Crown Passionflower, but with blooms twice the size! The blooms have darker color in the center.
