Many gardeners in the warmer regions of the country, and beyond, cannot help but to be passionate about the Passion Vine. The beautiful vine, with its exotic tendrils winding around trellises, makes a quick green screen that very soon has spectacular, purplish flowers.
The complex blooms of the Passion Flower Vine are said to represent The Passion of Christ; the central stamen representing the cross, various parts representing the apostles, and more. Religious or not, this plant is spectacular in the garden or shading a porch or deck.
With good sunlight, heat, and humidity, the Passion Flower Vine is trainable around a frame of an indoor window or trellis. Try planting the Passion Vine in a pot outdoors in the summer as a patio accent – just make sure to prune heavily after flowering and bring indoors for the winter (if in zones 1-6). Feed the Passion Vine regularly before and during the flowering season. Repotting and pruning are usually done in late fall, before spring stimulates fresh new growth. The Passion Flower Vine is hardy in USDA Hardiness Zones 6 through the tropics.
