Passiflora membranacea

Passiflora membranacea

Plant-a-holics close your eyes!!! To see this exquisite Passion Vine is to NEEEEED IIIT! You’ll lust so much, your eyes will ache, your heart will pitter-pat! What’s worse is that it’s robust, fast & easy to grow. Oooooh noooo! Here are the juicy details: it blooms from late Spring to Fall with the most delectable flowers displaying fabuloso 2” across rich ruby-purple bracts from which emerge perfectly contrasting chartreuse bell shaped blooms. Oh my! OK, it gets even worse, the flowers hang from slender stems in horizontal rows like ornaments against large round leaves, dark olive above & purple beneath. Aaarghh!! We’ve seen this paragon of passion reach 30’ in the Bay Area, so you know you’ll have to give it some room or possibly some pruning. Rich well-drained soil.

Please note: For best results, grow on for an extra season in a 5 gallon pot before planting in the ground and keep the plant consistently moist, but not soggy!!
