Passiflora ligularis 4" pot


Sweet Granadilla.  This passiflora has one of the best fruit of any passion fruit. It also has beautiful blue and white flowers with large, glossy, heart-shaped leaves.  This species is grown commercially for its sweet, orangish, egg-shaped fruits.

Dislikes overly warm weather and may be hard to get to fruit in a pot.  Needs a different passion vine to pollinate it in order to get fruit.

Subgenus: Passiflora.  Photo courtesy of John Ocampo.

 

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 10.
