Passionfruit Panama Red 15 Seeds
Passionfruit are hardy perennial vines that can reach from 4.5 to 9 m in height.
They carry beautiful flowers of white and purple, that bloom from late summer to early autumn.
How to Grow Passion Flower
The seeds should be soaked for a day, sown into flats, and maintained at about 27 degrees Centigrade in the greenhouse. Seeds can take a very long time to germinate and verying percentages.
Once ready transplant seedlings or cuttings into the garden in mid spring, well after the last chance of frost at about 60 to 90 cm apart. As Passionfruit are vines that reach a great height they will require a trellis to grow on. Passion flowers are able to grow in both sunny or partially shaded parts of the garden. It is very important that the soil that they grow in is deep and moist; it should be fairly rich.
