I remember walking home from school a certain way just to see these beautiful flowers!will order these for my yard
Hearty here in Southern Indian, Had growing on the back of house, wonderful spreader of flowers and vine. Only thing I did not like was that it can get to be an aggressive root spreader
I love the Passion Fruit vine! After the second year, my fence was covered with gorgeous foliage and the bees and butterflies were in heaven. My fruit never fully develops, but the beauty of the flowers makes up for that. The vine will hang onto anything within reach, so keep it in check.
