  1. Question

    Jonathan A Chang

    Is this Passiflora tripartita var. mollissima or Passiflora tarminiana? These were both considered Passiflora mollis until recently.

      Hi Jonathan,
      It is the banana passionflower as you see it in the photos. The arguments of taxonomists are endless.

    Melinda

    Can I grow the Banana Passion Fruit in a pot, instead of planting into the ground?

  3. Question

    Ann Wooledge

    I see you are out of stock for the Passiflora incarnata. Is this variety also medicinal? Do you think it would overwinter in Zone 5? Thank you.

      Hi Ann,
      Banana passionflower has no history of use as a sedative that I know of, and will not overwinter in a Z5. I’ll enable a few Passiflora incarnata plants for you, please order ASAP before someone else does! Richo
