Design Ideas Crimson Passionflower is best kept up close, where its color and form is most appreciated. Great grower for shade arbors, where it can snake up posts of wood, concrete or classical stone columns and hang most gracefully. A tropical plant that should be sheltered in a warm place, such as a protected side yard, fenced condominium patio or walled entry court. Stunning when trained over the top of a front-door entry. This equatorial jungle plant of South America is ideal for atriums with lots of light.

CARE

Water deeply and regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Prune annually to control size.
HISTORY
Lore Passionflower was named for the complex shapes within the flower which Christians used a symbols of Christ's passion.
