Subgenus Passiflora

Passiflora manicata 4" pot

Bright, flaming red, 4" flowers.  The vine is very large and vigorous, so it is best planted in the ground and used to rapidly cover a trellis or fence.  Once the vine gets large, it will be covered with stunning flowers. Does not like excessive heat. 

Subgenus: Passiflora, Supersection: Tacsonia, Section: Manicata.

Light: Full sun, part shade.  There will be less flowers in part shade.

Water: Moderate.

Soil: A wide range of soil, but it must be well-drained.

Fertilizer: A slow-release, bloom-booster type fertilizer is appreciated, but beware of using a fertilizer with too much nitrogen as it may push leaves at the expense of flowers.

Hardiness: Zone 9.

P. manicata

Grows well here in Portland, OR. I planted mine under a large cherry and it grows up the tree. It dies back to the roots in cold winters (we're a zone 7-8) but comes back each year. Fuchsia such as F. denticulata, F. boliviana, F. vulcanica, grow here is as well. they too die back to the roots in cold winters but come back if mulched. I hope this comparison helps. We usually see some snow in winter and few nights in the 20s and maybe teens. But it usually warms up above freezing during the day. So the ground only freezes an inch or two. Hope this helps.
