Stars on the wall

Large, fragrant stars. A boring pergola or fence is so passé! The passionflower 'Constance Elliot' (Passiflora caerulea) is an evergreen climbing plant, with star-shaped flowers that smell amazing. The passion flower attracts bees and butterflies! The flowers bloom all summer. The plant produces edible fruit in the second year after planting.
The plant needs the support of a climbing rack or fence to grow. Pruning is not necessary, unless the plant becomes too large. Sufficient light is needed to ensure good growth. Passionflowers grow best in the sun. The soil should be kept slightly damp. Water it more during dry periods.

Planting+
Hardy passion flower plants grow best in the garden. They do like a sheltered, sunny spot and that's just where these climbers are most likely to flower most abundantly and be at their prettiest. Improve the soil with some added potting compost. Remove the plant from its nursery pot and plant your passion flower in the soil. Water generously immediately after planting.
 
Passiflora in a large ornamental pot

Passiflora also grows well on the patio, in a greenhouse or conservatory or even as an indoor plant. Use a large flower pot with holes in the base (minimum 30 cm diameter). Cover the bottom with a layer of gravel or hydro-granules. Put compost in the pot and plant the root ball of the Passiflora pot at the correct depth. Fill with compost and press firmly. Water your passion flower immediately after planting. Put the passion flower in a place where it gets full sun.
Care+
If you regularly snip off the tips of side shoots on your Passiflora, you will encourage reflowering. If you want to see fruit grow on your plant, leave the overblown flowers to develop. For extra abundant flowering on your passion flower plant, Bakker advises feeding it regularly with a good liquid fertiliser throughout the summer.
Specifics+
Once the passion fruit is mature and ripe it is of course edible. This is more likely in areas with direct sunlight.
The shape of a passion flower is said to represent the suffering of Christ. The crown petals and long stamens make you think of the crown of thorns. The plant's name comes from the Latin 'passio' (suffering) and 'flos' (flower). Many varieties of Passiflora will fruit in the summer.
Passiflora is classified under Passifloraceae.
