Description

Passiflora caerulea 'Amethyst', Passion Flower Plants

The outer "petals" of this jewel of a plant are vivid violet, becoming more reflexed as they age; the filaments are purple with a white base. This vigorous climber will generally be evergreen in warmer areas and loses its leaves in colder locations: it depends on the winter and the microclimate. To 4 metres.

Growing 'Amethyst' Passion Flowers

Really well-drained soil is essential, and full sun is best in the North.

They require a fairly sturdy support, and their tendrils will attach themselves. Use a stick or cane to train the vine onto the support if necessary.

In Your Garden Design

There's something rather exotic about passion flowers, so make sure that they are growing somewhere you can admire the intricacies of their blooms close up. Use them to scramble up a a sheltered wall or fence or even the front of small house. The orange fruits are pretty unpalatable but look attractive when they appear in late summer. Grow on a sunny patio, along with wallflowers, lavenders and a display of bedding plants including cosmos, nemesia and sweet peas, going for a striking pink, purple and white scheme.
