Ahhhh, old world Passiflora. What Pasiflora lover doesn’t daydream about this odd but wonderful group of vines?
Passiflora aurantia is a fun, fun, fun species to grow! It opens a nice creamy color and then over a 4 day period, you get to watch it gradually get deeper and deeper in color! How much more fun could you ask for? Yeah I know, I’ve been told many times that I’m easily entertained. Say what you like, Passiflora aurantia is so much fun to watch as it transforms from a pretty little peach to a flaming sunset. Ahhh, it is so nice. In our hot, dry climate Passiflora aurantia blooms heavily in late winter through spring with a few flowers popping up here and there the rest of the year.
