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.
Passiflora citrina (T-0282)

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! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
