Plant is vigorous once established, but the Gulf Frit larvae do like to eat it. Doesn't like extreme heat, but will survive it. Grows well in Miracle Grow potting soil. Has fuzzy, tri-lobed leaves. Flowers in the fall. Opens multiple blooms simultaneously (same day) with a few stragglers the next day, then takes a couple of weeks to "reload" before putting on another show. Cool flowers with lots of small filaments shaped into a dome. Flowers are about 2 inches across.

Attractive, small and sweet smelling flowers. Flowers seem to last longer than most passifloras but then again, mine only flowered in the house.

More comment this summer when I get it outside in prime condition.
