Passiflora Caerulea. Blue Passion Flower. Pyramid.
The Passiflora Caerulea is a fast growing semi-evergreen climber with the most beautiful exotic flowers produced in succession throughout the summer. Scented flowers are around 8cm across with white petals and a centre crown that contains numerous purple and blue filaments, 5 greenish-yellow stamens and 3 purple stigmas.
Pretty dark green glossy leaves are palmately lobed with 5-7 fingers and pale green tendrils. Fruits are egg shaped, orange in colour and are edible but a little bland in taste. This showy climber is great for covering walls and trellises in courtyards and city gardens as well as making great container plants for patios, conservatories and greenhouses. Very cold hardy, in really severe freezes it may die back to the ground but will regrow from the roots in spring.
Awarded the Royal Horticultural Society's Award Of Garden Merit.
