Large, soft pink, pendant flowers are adorned with long purple filaments. One of the parents of Passiflora 'Donna Brigham.' It attracts hummingbirds and when pollinated by another Tacsonia, produces round yellow fruits that are quite tasty. Can tolerate a slight frost. The large flowers hang down like pink parasols making this a good choice for a pergola, arch or even an unsightly tree! Does not tolerate excessive heat.
