Pashion flower.


Pashion flower. (Passiflora caerulea (Passion flower))

It's only a small plant which I bought this summer but it has a couple of flowers on it now. Fingers crossed it survives the winter and comes back bigger and stronger next year.

Fingers crossed because it can get quite cold up my garden. I would love it to grow up and over the arch. Did you cut yours back at all?

Agree with Dotty, mine has a trunk with a circumference as big as my arm, almost.

Mine grows against a fence, the area is now covered with gravel and I noticed 2 shoots are growing in the raised bed about 3ft away from it. It also climbed up into the neighbours cherry tree last year, luckily they don't mind, phew!

Those 2 shoots are going to be potted up for my daughters garden as she has so much space to fill.

...and there was me thinking they are tender plants that needed extra care and protection....

Don't worry too much HB. We've got one too and as its got a bit 'wild' to say the least I've been researching what to do. Apparently if you cut back in spring, a bit like Clematis, they respond in the same way...just hope that's right lol!

There are other varieties but, we have never managed to get them through the winter months unfortunately....

I cut mine back to the secondary stems, close to the main stem each year.
