Passiflora dispar 4" pot


Only recently named, Passiflora dispar is closely related to Passiflora oerstedii, but it has pure white flowers. Native to Costa Rica.  Very carefree as long as it is protected from freezing temperatures, the vine has leaves that are smooth on the upper surface and velvety underneath.  Unusual to find for sale.  The larvae of the butterfly Dione moneta poeyii use it as host plant.

Subgenus: Passiflora, Supersection: Stipulata, Section: Granadillastrum.  Formerly known as Passiflora pseudo-oerstedii.  

 

Light: Full sun/part shade.  If grown in part shade, there will be less flowers.

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 11.
