Product Description

Passiflora suberosa, Corky Stemmed Passion Vine


The flowers on this plant usually grow as a single blossom every 4 or 5 inches down the stem with very light greenish petals and light yellow filaments and a white center. The shiny maple-shaped leaves make this plant attractive even when not in blossom. This vine produced hundreds of these blossoms during this past summer which in turn produce many tiny ½ inch deep purple passion fruits. The vine grows to about 10 feet and was pretty much pest free. Keep in the ground and protect it in the winter months with a very light mulch. Native to Florida, Texas, South America, Mexico, Caribbean

Please beware that parts of this plant may be toxic if ingested.
