Description

Passiflora caerulea: Common Blue Passion Flower Plants

Passion flowers are some of the most distinctively exotic around, and this hardy species is the most commonly grown variety in the UK. The outer part of the flower is white with a hint of green, and the inner corona is blue-purple. The yellow-orange fruit are edible, but not tasty, so best left for decoration.
This vigorous climber will generally be evergreen in the South, and will lose its leaves in the North: it depends on the winter and the microclimate. To 10 metres.

Growing Blue 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.
