Lovely, lush leaves and bright red, torpedo-shaped fruits are the main attractions offered by this rare offering to the Passiflora obsessed! The vine is tinged with red and has a very attractive form that branches freely and doesn't get untidy or leggy like some passiflora. The flowers are relatively small, white and have lavender centers with yellow-tipped filaments. Excellent choice for a frost-free, larger hanging basket.
