Passiflora

Post by AhmadIrfan » March 14th, 2013, 11:19 am

@ khabbab any update on the passiflora seeds ?? I planted 3 plants in the ground they were doing well but they died during the frost, 2 weeks ago i found some new growth coming out of the ground and to my surprise it was passiflora, now new nodes are appearing from the ground 2-3 feet away as well, from one plant now i have almost 7 new nodes.

Well i did not put any of those passies into ground due to lack of space. All seedlings are in 7 inches pot. They survived the winter easily and are starting new growth. I will move them to bigger pot and hope they bloom by next year. But on back of my head, i know some seed grown passies are shy to flower for many years :(

This is the reason i did not plant passie into ground. Its runners are very annoying. That happened to passiflora incarnata which i put in ground and then got rid of it as my small space cannot afford it. But if you have space, you can enjoy lots of plants :)

i had the blue/purple passiflora many years ago this never happened to those plants, they very tasty treats for the terminates who infested my garden back then. I will probably saperate these and put them in different locations since two plants are growing betweem the nanthra border.
