Passionflower Passiflora Lady Margaret


Passiflora Lady Margaret is a fast growing passionflower vine hybrid, a crossing between Passiflora coccinea und Passiflora incarnata (Maypop Passionflower), but even as one parent is the hardy Passiflora incarnata, Lady Margret doesn`t tolerate temperatures below 5°C.

The Passiflora hybrid with its stunning, magenta-red flowers with a pure white center is considered as difficult to care as the plant atttracts pests, especially spider mites. Flowers get a size of 8 - 10 cm in diameter. Flowering period: July - October. Like all Passiflora plants, the Lady Margaret passionflower requires warm - hot temperatures and is best cultivated in full sun. With good conditions the passionflower vine can reach lengths up to about 6 meters, but is also suitable as a container plant. Fruits of the Lady Margaret passionflower are hollow and contain just a very few seeds.
Flowers are fragrant and attract butterflies and bees.
