Blue Crown Passion Flower. Hardy Passion Flower. A smaller, diploid version of Clear Sky, it has 4 inch flowers with white petals and blue corona filaments.

If the top is damaged by frost, it will sprout from underground, tuberous roots. This is a very large vine, so it will need a lot of room. It is ideal for covering fences and screens rapidly.
