Subgenus Passiflora

Passiflora cincinnata 4" pot

Very fragrant, blue/violet/lavender flowers with long, wavy corona filaments. The flowers are 3-5" wide and, if pollinated by another passion flower, are followed by round, edible fruits that have very good flavor. Beautiful palmate leaves.  This is a large vine that likes heat and has proved to be a very valuable species for creating hybrids.  It is a parent of many fragrant Passiflora hybrids including P. 'Blue Velvet', P. 'Temptation', and P. 'Vivacemente.'
