Passion Vine (Riverside®)
Hailing from South America, Passifloras entertain dazzling flower parts that attract butterflies and plant lovers, and in the Catholic faith once symbolized Jesus’ last day. These wildly vivacious and floriferous semievergreen climbers appreciate sun, heat and good air circulation as well as cold protection around 18 degrees plus free-draining, somewhat dry sandy soil with moderate fertility. Frequent trimming will encourage branching, while a cool greenhouse or warm masonry wall will ensure their winter survival.
Parented by Passiflora caerulea and Passiflora ‘White Wedding’, this award-winning 2011 Myles Irvine introduction is a polyploid hybrid debuting a prolific warm weather gala of luxe pure white flowers amid handsome glossy greenery. Each fragrant, 3 to 4 in. wide blossom remains open for several days and features long, ultrafine pointed filaments, hooked outer petals plus 3 bold purple-spotted stigmas. ‘Snow Queen’s quick-to-establish root system supports a peppy habit with twining tendrils and large, veined, palmately lobed leafage.
