Passion Fruit plants
(Passiflora edulis) Self-fertile passion fruit that can be grown in containers, in the greenhouse, or outdoors in warmest climate zones. Prefers full sun, ample water. The delicious purple fruits are fine for eating out of hand, or processing into jellies, juices or desserts. The classic white, purple and cream-colored Passion flowers are stunning, especially when grown where they can be seen and appreciated close-up. Bees and butterflies love them as well. Climbing plants will require staking. Please consider these terms before ordering live plants: Most plants will be 3”-7” in height. Please make sure you are ready for your order in your zone as these young, tender plants generally have no resistance to cold.
Plant Care Instrustions:
Plants cannot tolerate a hard freeze; however, northern growers can grow them in hanging baskets and bring them indoors in the winter or grow them outdoors simply for their gorgeous flowers (but no fruit). Plant outdoors after chance of frost has passed. Choose a sunny site with well-drained soil. Trellis or stake plants to keep them from taking over the garden, as they will otherwise grow into a tangled mess! Prune vines to create airflow and to promote fruiting. WARNING: PLANTS ARE VERY YOUNG AND TENDER. DO NOT PUT THEM OUTSIDE UNTIL ALL DANGER OF FROST HAS PASSED.
