Passiflora

Passion Flower

Hailing from South America, Passifloras entertain dazzling flower parts that attract butterflies and plant lovers, and in the Catholic faith once symbolized Jesus’ last day. These wildly vivacious and floriferous semievergreen climbers appreciate sun, heat and good air circulation as well as cold protection around 18 degrees plus free-draining, somewhat dry sandy soil with moderate fertility. Frequent trimming will encourage branching, while a cool greenhouse or warm masonry wall will ensure their winter survival.

 

The prized 2002 British outcome of the ‘Star of Bristol’ and ‘Purple Haze’ cross by Englishman Myles Irvine, this moderately vigorous evergreen vine musters untold quantities of stylish, lightly perfumed 5 in. wide blooms. The stellar, long-lasting pure white petals gather around a large corona, each with bright bluish purple filaments and a soft pink center. More cold tolerant than our other Passiflora offerings, easily cultivated ‘Star of Surbiton’ handles full sun and temperatures down to approximately 18°, while enjoying warm mulched abodes, either in the ground or in a favored vessel.

Blooms June–December

Size: 6' 0" – 12' 0" high x 0" & spreading wide.

Zone 8b.
