Passiflora

Passiflora citrina full sun  partial shade

Perhaps the only yellow blooming hummingbird pollinated Passiflora in the world, this exquisite freeflowering climber can be relished inside or out. Dozens of bright lemon-colored starry blossoms festoon an easy-to-manage, highly welcome diminutive stature that's draped with small bilobed evergreen leaves. Sauntering around Guatemala and Honduras, where John MacDougal first spotted it in 1989, Passiflora citrina is a stellar contender for containers, sun-basked windowsills, hanging baskets and tight garden spots. Bright light, average moisture, almost any moderately fertile soil and night temperatures exceeding 25° keep the flowers coming. Medium Band.

Blooms April – September.

Size: 10' high & spreading; hardy to zone 9.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
