So gorgeous, but it did not survive the Sacramento winter. In spite of that, I'm looking for another Elizabeth.

I've grown this one before (among numerous others) -- well, it's a knock-out! I just couldn't help re-buying this beauty again and again. Yet (alas, so far) I buy "again" because it's too "iffy" in terms of our winter cold + wet season (that's winter in the Bay Area, CA). So -- not a bad investment for an annual, but it'd sure be better if I could keep her around (think protected wall, etc) If anybody's had luck finding ways of over-wintering this gorgeous lady, and has tips to share -- please let me know!

Spectacular 4" fragrant blossoms with rich purple massive, wavy filaments. I've grown many kinds of Passiflora, but this one is a real knockout.
