This was one of the most talked about plants in my garden. When this plant bloomed it took my breath away. I often watched as people came around to take pictures of it
Region: Pacific Northwest
Near Seattle, grows and flowers profusely with 3 hours direct sun and little or no summer water. No pests or diseases in 5 years. Starts growth late in Spring. I clip it twice during growth to limit to a 10 x 10 trellis. Roots spread in loose soil - mine popped up a new vine 10 feet away.
i have one doing really good in the shade
Region: Lower Plains
I don't know about the fancy hybrids, but the native passionflower (Here in Texas) either is eaten to the ground by caterpillers, or in years they don't show up, takes over EVERYTHING. I wish I had never planted it, but on an unobstructed fence where it can't get to other plants, and if sprayed, it is a nice vine with cool flowers.
