Miri Passion Flower. Lovely, free-flowering new hybrid with pink/lavander flowers and a dark, furry center. I am really excited to offer this new hybrid. Not only does it have an absolutely beautiful flower, but it has be really easy to grow and bloom. I've had a chance to grow it for a couple of years and it has been extremely tolerant of neglect and extreme weather. Last summer we had record-breaking heat in triple digits. While Miri didn't enjoy it, it didn't seem to set it back much. Though it hasn't been tested in an area with high heat over long periods of time, it looks very promising. It also survived temperatures this winter below 20 degrees F! It lost a good portion of the vine, but about six inches of green stem are left that is starting to sprout.
