Product Information

The exotic looking multi-layered flowers of Passion Flowers bely their ease of growing and their toughness and resilience- these are hardy once established, but in colder areas grow against a south facing wall or in large pots.

A fabulous lush evergreen climber and alternative to Clematis, for covering walls, arches and trellises. The lovely intricate pure white flowers are very waxy and long lasting, their amazing detail a joy to behold. In hot years, you'll be rewarded with small, egg shaped passion fruit.

Grow in a pot up a trellis or obelisk, it will thrive outside, and will happily perform year after year.2

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

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 plant 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 plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.

Aftercare Advice

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

Pruning Advice for Passion Flower

  • 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 your plant will respond by sending out new shoots.
