Intricate Purple and White Passion Flowers

  • Passion flower (Passiflora). These spectacularly showy fringed flowers bloom on a vigorous tendril vine that can reach 20 feet. A tender perennial, the passion flower may die back in winter but will reappear in spring if the roots have survived. The blue, or common, passion flower (P. caerulea) has white and lavender flowers up to four inches wide and is hardy to zone 8. The maypop (P. incarnata), a native plant, has two-inch-wide mostly lavender fringed flowers and is hardy to zone 7. Maypops are often grown from cuttings, as the seeds can be tough to start.
