Name: 2 x Passiflora caerulea - HARDY Blue passion flower- EXOTIC FLOWERS & ORANGE FRUITS. This Hardy Perennial Climber has been container grown so can be planted at any time of the year. We despatch WITH container so the roots are protected.

Description: This is a stunning Passion Flower 'Passiflora caerulea' and gives you the perfect climber for structures like pergolas, trellis, archways, or indeed through other varieties of your favourite trees or shrubs. This troublefree climber clings with tendrils so won't damage brickwork or fences! Passion Flower 'Passiflora caerulea' is a profuse bloomer in early summer to late autumn with stunning BLUE flowers and as the plant itself matures the flowers deepen in colour and this hardy vine will not disappoint and will reward you year on year. After flowering this vine produces egg-shaped, orange-yellow fruits and these can be left on the plants for decoration. The fruits are edible but do not have an outstanding flavour! The leaves on this Passion Flower are very pretty too, deeply lobed, dark green and glossy. The Passion Flower was given its name by misionary priests in South America who saw a resemblance between the flower and elements of Christ's passion. The ten flower segments were said to represent the ten apostles (Peter and Judas were not included), the corona the crown of thorns, the five stamens Christ's five wounds and the three stigmas the three nails. This Passion Flower has exceptionally good disease reisistance and prefers to be planted with sun to partial shade. When newly planted this climber likes it roots kept cool - so mulch well with a good quality forest bark. This particular vine can also be used indoors as a houseplant. Passion Flowers requires very little pruning except to direct growth. Our Passion Flower plants are hardened off and supplied shooting well on a cane in a 9cm pot ready for planting in your garden or favourite patio container. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM)! For excellent year round flower and foliage effect, why not try combining this climbing plant with the perfect companion, Evergreen 'Lonicera Repens' ( Japanese Evergreen Honeysuckle) giving an all-year round display.
