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' 0" high & spreading; hardy to zone 9.
Passiflora citrina (T-0282)

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!
Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings
Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.
Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer. Digging Dog's Early August 2017 Newsletter Link
