See what people are saying about us...

We regularly sell to universities and the top passiflora experts in the world. We make every effort to ensure that the plant is free of virus and correctly identified, usually waiting to see the plant bloom, which can take years. We also try to make sure the product photos are of our specific plant since there can be desirable or unusual traits depending on the clone.

Received plants yesterday and cannot begin to express my appreciation.  Plants were extraordinary and considering they went from Oregon to south Florida they looked as if I had just brought them home from the local plant nursery.  My thanks times 10.  I will be back for more orders. -Philip B.

Thanks, I absolutely LOVE my passiflora! -Pam R.

You have a wonderful store and great deals. My life is much more full of plants since I found your site! -Rachael V.

The passiflora plants sent were healthy and packaged perfect. I am also impressed by Elizabeth's great communication. If you are looking for a great variety of passifloras, including some more rare ones, she offers them for a very reasonable price. -Vanessa

Best customer service ever!!!! Thanks Elizabeth. The plants are beautiful!!!!! -Karin Y.

The plants were packaged perfectly and were not only healthy but bloomed within a few days of receiving them. -Craftyfrogmom 

We love your flowers and have ordered just about every year for the past 5 years. -Sarah

The plants were extremely healthy! I can tell you, I order a lot from online plant sources and these plants were good, if not better, than my favorite online gardens in Hawaii!!! You can not get these quality plants from your local hardware or garden store. They also will share lots of information, just ask! -paralegalmbl

This is one of the most complete webs pages on passiflora genera and a great site, you have great pictures from the passiflora variety. -Jose

I am truly overjoyed with the products and customer service that you and Elizabeth are working so hard to provide. She sent me some tips for keeping my passifloras healthy over the winter and her advice has been very helpful. -Rachael

Excellent service.  Arrived healthy and eager to start thriving in our Kailua environment.  -Ron

I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the 3 clivias I purchased from you last spring.  The C. gardenii is already blooming.  It has 2 scapes!  - Paula

[Elizabeth] saved me from some purchases that would have not survived the winter here. Her greenhouse is amazing. You can see that she loves what she is doing. I would only get my Passionflower vines from her. -Samtpfote

Thank you for your wonderful flowers. I'm addicted!!!!! -Barbara B.

Our 40% off clearance sale is here!

The annual clearance begins in...
October 1st - 31st: All available stock is forty percent off

Time to clear out the greenhouses, bring in all our frost-hardy plants & prepare for winter. We have had a fantastic year, and while we're sad to see the summer go, at least you guys can reap some of the benefits.

Be advised that the plants sell out very fast. The sale is limited to stock on hand, so be prepared to act quickly. Head over to our shop to see what's available.


A couple new features:

We've just added wishlists! Now you can...

  • Prepare for the clearance. As you may know, many plants sell out crazy fast, so now you'll have a handy list so you can line up all your plants when the clearance starts. The view from the wishlist also allows you to see which plants have already sold out. We hope this helps your frenzied shopping a little!
  • Send to family & friends. Easily share the wishlist link with friends & family if they need a little hint on what type of plant you really want.
  • Keep your wishlist handy for next spring's shopping.

Also added: Product reviews

  • Submit reviews for the plants you've bought. How is your plant doing? Did it arrive in good condition? Was the size what you expected? Let us (and fellow shoppers) know! 
  • Share growing advice. Whether we underestimated our new plant or we're new to collecting a species or just simply realize that our climate is not very well-suited, some plants really throw us for a loop. Every house, city & microclimate is different. Now you can easily let us know how you met these challenges and even what methods you used to troubleshoot the tricksy bit of flora.
  • Share tips & information. While the internet has amazing advice on every imaginable plant, there can be marked variations within each species, depending on the cultivar or specific grower. By sharing your experience on this particular plant, people can compare notes. For example, perhaps you found coloring to be slightly different from other clones within the same species. Or perhaps the leaves twisted more on this particular clone. Let us know what you found with your specific plants & growing conditions.
And don't forget! Our daily deal will still be going in October! Daily deals are always 60% off, so keep checking back throughout October and you can save an additional 20% on whatever plant is being featured that day.


Happy shopping!
