Product Information

The flowers of Passiflora are quite possibly the most exotic looking that you can grow, and ‘Betty Myles Young’ is a perfect example.

The extraordinary flowers have bright purple-blue reflexed petals and filaments tipped with blue and are absolutely fascinating to see as they appear all over this semi-evergreen climber from May until September, standing out in contrast to the glossy, deep green multi-lobed leaves.

Hardy once established, they thrive against a south-facing wall or in large pots – and perfect for covering walls, arches and trellises. The flowers are very waxy and long lasting, and their amazing detail is a fascinating. You may even be treated to orange passion fruits in hot years, but wait until they’re very orange and ripe before eating.

Supplied as an established plant in an 11cm pot, ready to plant and growing to 6m (20ft) in height with a spread of 4m (13ft).

Care Information

Planting Advice for Passiflora

  • Passion flowers tends to bloom particularly well when their roots are restricted by a container or path side border.
  • When planting in a container, use John Innes No 3 potting compost, or any good quality compost.
  • Pot-grown shrubs can be planted at any time of the year as long as the soil is not waterlogged or frozen.
  • Water your potted plants well, then dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plants from their pots and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your selected plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling) and firm in the soil with your hand, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.

Aftercare

  • Water well and regularly for the first few months. With a robust and rapidly growing root system, your plants will establish rapidly.
  • Once planted, keep the area free of competing weeds.
  • Apply a generous layer of mulch around the base of the plants after planting and thereafter annually.

Pruning Advice

  • Little pruning is needed apart from removing any branches that are dead, damaged or diseased.
  • If your passion flower is overgrown or badly frost-damaged, carry out renovation in spring by cutting back the stems to 30-60cm (1-2ft) from soil level and it will respond by sending out new shoots.
