Passiflora arida 4" pot

Love-In-A-Mist.  Closely related to Passiflora foetida. Lavender and white flowers are surrounded by fantastically lacy, branched bracts. Very furry, sticky vine.  Self-pollinates to produce loads of beautiful, bright red fruits.

Subgenus: Passiflora, Supersection Stipulata, Section Dysosmia.  Host plant for many butterflies including the Gulf Fritillary (Agraulis vanillae).  Photo courtesy of Maurizio Vecchia.

 

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

Water: On the dry side.

Soil: A wide range of soil, but it must be well-drained.  Tolerates moderately salty and alkaline conditions.

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 11.
