You are buying 24+ Seeds for the

Common, Hardy, Blue Passion Flower (AKA: Passionflower, Apricot Vine) (Passiflora

caerulea). As always, planting instructions are included with my seeds.





Passiflora caerulea are Perennial Vines hardy from zone 6b to 11. These will die

back in the winter with hard freezes (actually, here in zone 9, mine didn't die back - they stayed green all winter), but will return in the spring. Covered during

the summer months with 3-4 FRAGRANT Bluish-Purple and white FRILLY flowers (my

husband says they remind him of old fashioned Easter Hats!), this vine will be a

hit with YOU as well as the butterflies in your garden!





These vines are HOST plants for the



Zebra Long Wing
and

Gulf Fritillary butterfly

caterpillars - they not only

enjoy the nectar from the flowers but they lay eggs on the vines and the

caterpillars feed on the leaves of the passion vine - making more butterflies

for your garden!





These enjoy full sun, but can tolerate partial shade and are fine in poor soil,

but do need it well draining. They will need something sturdy to climb on like a

fence or arbor or even a tree.





I suggest not planting these in or next to a flower bed that has other plants

growing in it because these spread with underground runners. Within 2-3 years

the runners may overtake the other plants. Planting next to a lawn is better, if

you get too many plants coming up, they can simply be mowed with the lawn.





These can also be container grown if you have a small yard and are concerned

about them taking over or spreading too far afield.
