About Passiflora

Passiflora are more commonly known as the ‘Passion Flower’. They are often half-hardy climber shrubs with generally evergreen leaves and distinctive, exotic flowers followed by fruits which are often edible in some species. Passiflora look particularly attractive within wall side borders and courtyard gardens within containers, cottage and informal garden settings. These plants will grow to an approximate height of 4.8m (16’). Please take care when handling Passiflora, as they are highly toxic if ingested into your system.

How to plant Passiflora

Passiflora are best planted in moist but well drained soil of sand, clay, chalk and loam in an acidic, alkaline and neutral PH balance. They are best positioned in full sun or part shade with protection from adverse weather conditions and strong winds. It is advised that you supplement the planting area with compost as this will aid in providing additional nutrients.

How to care for Passiflora

Pruning should be undertaken once the flowering period has finished. Apply a balanced fertiliser during early spring. Water your plants thoroughly throughout active growth, especially during periods of drought, decreasing the volume of water needed during the winter.

How to propagate Passiflora

It is possible to propagate Passiflora by seed or layering during spring or by semi hardwood cuttings during summer.
