Of all the flowering vines, Passiflora bear some of the showiest blooms on earth. An easily grown plant, Passion Flower look absolutely stunning in the garden or inside as a year-round houseplant. The Purple Granadilla is a vigorous and free flowering deciduous climbing perennial vine which grows up to 20 feet long at maturity. Blooming from late May through October, its beautifully intricate purple and white fragrant flowers are approximately 3-4" across and are followed by smooth, round 2 inch fruits that are edible and turn maroon purple when ripe. Purple passion fruit has a rich flavor, is less acidic than the yellow, and is really juicy on the inside. Although classed as half-hardy, Passion Flower can survive winters even in zone 6 when it has the shelter of a south facing wall. In colder zones, these are best grown outside in containers and overwintered inside or grown as a year-round houseplant. Inside plants bloom intermittently throughout the winter months.
