Passiflora herbertiana 4" pot


Australian Passion Flower.  Old World species native to Australia. Creamy yellow, orange or red, 2.5", star-shaped flowers. Like P. aurantia, the flowers last 3-4 days and darken as they age. Established plants may be able to take some frost.  If the flowers are pollinated with another passion vine, a light green, edible fruit may develop.

Subgenus: Decaloba, Supersection: Disemma, Section: Disemma.

 

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, but possibly lower in a sheltered spot.
