Passiflora citrina

Passiflora ‘Citrina’

Yummy, 1.5” lemon drop, starry blooms shine from Spring through Fall on this diminutive gem first discovered in Honduras by plantsman John MacDougal in 1991. Perfect for small spaces, it grows fairly quickly to about 10’ with cute, felty-soft cape shaped leaves. Easily grown indoors in a pot, for those of you in colder parts, just give it a few bamboo stakes to crawl on & you’ll have blooms nearly year-long in a sunny windowsill. Pretty in hanging baskets & outdoor containers fulfilling the three principles of an awesome container design: fill, spill & thrill (with a trellis of course). Butterflies & bees fancy it, too!
