April – September.
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.
Size: 10' 0" high & spreading; hardy to zone 9.
Passiflora citrina (T-0282)
