Product Information

A plant of undisputed beauty, this free-flowering passion flower certainly brings the wow-factor to your garden.
With subtle, pastel flowers that look like they have been made out of sugar paste, it's easy to see why Passiflora 'Fata Confetto shares its name with the Nutcracker's Sugar Plum Fairy.

The lustrous lavender-coloured flowers are made even more attractive by the crinkled, striped filaments which radiate out from the centre, giving them the appearance of exotic jellyfish floating in a sea of green.

Giving you a glorious display of perfumed blooms every year over many months, this easy, vigorous climber is a plant with a mission - to fill your garden or conservatory with colour.

Easily trained up a trellis or obelisk in the garden, or over a frame in a large on the patio or in the conservatory, 'Fata Confetto' grows to around 3m, but is simple to keep in check with a quick snip of the secateurs if it gets too boisterous.

Supplied as 1 plant in a 9cm pot.

Top Tips

Don't over-feed as the vine will produce leaves at the expense of flowers.

Care Information

Outside:

  • For best results, if grown outside, plant along a wall or fence.
  • While 'Fata Confetto' is hardy, it's not fond of the cold and may drop its leaves over winter.
  • Mulch deeply over the autumn and your passion flower plant will return with new shoots in the spring.
  • Passion flowers need full sun and well-drained soil.
  • Feed with a general purpose fertiliser: once in early spring and one in mid summer.

Inside:

  • Growing passion flowers indoors is as easy, you just need a big pot and a window with bright light.
  • Plant your vine in normal potting compost (with added John Innes) and water regularly.
  • Your plant can be moved outdoors after all danger of frost is past and allowed to grow normally. Then, in autumn, cut back the growth to a reasonable height and bring it back indoors - it's that easy!
