Lavender Lady Passion Flower
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.
Myriad 4 in. wide violet flowers set against a lush, mighty mantle of twining stems and hardy 3-lobed green leaves make an out-of-this world nearly year-round showing. Garnished with fringe-like inky-purple filaments, green anthers plus white centers, the jewel-box blooms impart a unique glowing translucence that entices butterflies and plant lovers alike. Patrick Worley’s 1982 brainchild, this Passiflora amethystina and Passiflora caerulea cross is known to survive temperatures as low as 15°, making it the go-to choice for northerly gardeners as well as those craving long-lasting purple flower-power.
