Buy Passiflora alata winged stem passion flower: Stunning purple flowers and yellow fruit

This climber is semi-evergreen, so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new foliage appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, moist, well-drained soil, or large pots filled with loam-based compost
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to August
  • Hardiness: half hardy (must have winter protection)

    Attractive (mainly) evergreen foliage forms a lush backdrop for the fragrant flowers, which are a stunning mix of red, purple and white. They appear over a long period from late spring, and are followed by ovoid yellow fruits, which can be eaten when fully ripe. It will be happiest when trained against a very sheltered, south-facing wall - or grown in a large pot and kept in a conservatory or greenhouse.

  • Garden care: Water freely during the growing season, but cut back in winter. Keep frost free in winter (they prefer temperatures no lower than 5°C) and remove dead, misplaced or overcrowded stems in spring.
