Passiflora ‘Snow Queen’

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.

 

<i>Passiflora</i> ‘Snow Queen’

Parented by Passiflora caerulea and Passiflora ‘White Wedding’, this award-winning 2011 Myles Irvine introduction is a polyploid hybrid debuting a prolific warm weather gala of luxe pure white flowers amid handsome glossy greenery. Each fragrant, 3 to 4 in. wide blossom remains open for several days and features long, ultrafine pointed filaments, hooked outer petals plus 3 bold purple-spotted stigmas. ‘Snow Queen’s quick-to-establish root system supports a peppy habit with twining tendrils and large, veined, palmately lobed leafage. (pp#29,608)

PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE PRIOR TO PLACING YOUR ORDER!

Due to the unprecedented influx of orders, phone calls and emails that we have been receiving, our small family run business of not quite a dozen people, is sadly behind at this time. The combination of extremely cold weather in January and February, as well as vendor plant shortages and unanticipated delays, are adding to our difficulty of assigning ship dates in a timely fashion. Please know our team is working diligently to catch up. Orders are currently taking up to 5 weeks to review. To be as fair as possible to our valued customers, we are processing orders in the order they were received. We appreciate your patience and hope that you can accept our heartfelt apology for any inconvenience.
