The plant prefers full sun, dryish soils and a trellis. The first year or two, while the plant is getting established, you need to keep them watered and weeded. After that, you just provide a place for them to climb.

    Hi Richo,
    Would you recommend two of the passionflower pots to grow on a walkway trellis or would one work ?
    Thanks

      hi norma! if you want passionflower to trellis on both sides, you’d get a faster effect by planting one on each side and letting them join up top. richo

    Third-year planted gave us a big surprise this week. I think I screamed out loud a little.

  3. Question

    Cora

    I live in zone 4 so I know I couldn’t plant this directly outdoors, but would it still thrive in a well lit room with larger containers and something it could weave through? I use this as a tincture and would love to include it in my homegrowns if possible. Thanks!

      Hi Cora,
      Since passionflower really needs that full sun and dryish soil, it might work better to plant it to a large pot and keep outdoors, then move indoors for winter dormancy. the plant would like that, i think, because it really does have a strong dormancy and probably wouldn’t suffer indoors over the winter. richo

      If passionflower grows too early in the season and then freezes, is it a goner? Some living plants were shipped to a nursery I work at, growing in early March…and they have not recovered from frost. My manager claims they will come back but I doubt it, I feel their strong dormancy is to prevent any contact with freezes. Your opinion?

      Hi there, simply dig one up and see if its sprouted or if its decomposed. Either that, or wait until July–it will be aerial by then.

      Do you think I could plant passionflower in the ground in the fall (octoberish) in zone 8b and it survive through the winter?

      hi dana, Fall planting of perennials is pretty common in a zone 8, except fall plantings of passionflower don’t tend to do very well. it is better to plant in the spring. We’ve tried it both ways and this is our advice. richo

      I can’t say enough about the beautiful wines and flowers that come from this plant. This is our third year after planting and I was shocked to find, so far, six passion fruits growing! I love strictly medicinal’s seeds and plants. They are strong, resilient and so healthy. The vines start at the ground in front of my porch and climb up to the roof, still searching for more house to cling to. Amazing.

      hi beverly, have you considered building your house higher to accommodate the passionflower? It might be worth it. r

      Well, Richo, We wouldn’t want Passmina to think we didn’t love her, so I suppose a remodel is in order 🙂
