passiflora caerula is very easy passiflora... i live in zone 7 and i grow it as outdoor plant...with minimal protection (few centimeters of mulch) it can overwinter successfully, i have seen this passifloras grown as pot plants an definitely is not good sight, they show their full beauty only if are grown directly in the garden soil.. mine grown from a cutting has been bigger than 4 meters and it has flowered all summer

Kuchlar is right. As plants grown in a container, they don't do that great although you can get them to flower some. All passiflora grow fast & with abundant growth. They're very 'hungry' plants & will soon deplete the nutrients in the soil in a container - even if fertilized regularly. Chemical fertilizers don't suffice as compared to rich humus-y soil so can't provide enough for the growth a such a rampant vine in a container.

I grew one in a container for a few years (that I started from seeds) when I didn't have my own place & was proud of how it did. But after being able to plant one in the ground, I realised how small the leaves were previously & how little it flowered in the pot.

passiflora-uk.co.uk says "the ideal compost is free-draining soil-based mixture of equal parts sharp sand or gravel, medium or coarse peat and loam, rather than a peat-based compost which can easily become waterlogged." There's more info on growing passiflora from them at www.passiflora-uk.co.u...rowing.htm

I don't know what zone you live in but Passiflora caerula is the easiest & most winter hardy of all passiflora so I hope this helps you with yours.

Passiflora caerulea, commonly known as the Blue Passion Flower or the Common Passion Flower, is a vine native to South America (Argentina, Paraguay (where it is widely known as the Mburucuyá in Guaraní) , Uruguay and Brazil). These names may also be applied to Passiflora edulis sometimes known as the passionfruit.

It is popular with gardeners because of its intricate, scented flowers that have an almost plastic-looking appearance.

Passiflora caerulea is cultivated worldwide. Even though the fruit is edible, it is rather insipid when eaten raw. It can substitute for blackberries. More palatable is the fruit of the Passiflora edulis, which is sweet and acidic. A tea can be made of the flower and is said to alleviate stress and anxiety. However, cyanogenic glycoside (breaks down into cyanide) has been found in the leaves. It is possible to boil away most of the cyanide.[citation needed].
In South America, it is used to make juice and delicious desserts such as the passion fruit mousse.

Hi,

Passiflora caerulea grows very well in pots.

It likes fertilizers high in Phosphorus and Potassium applied as a soil drench and foliar feeding.

Bob

I have one I grew from seed, although potted plants are given chemicals to induce flowers, they do best in a spot that gets full sun and where roots do not freeze. All of my plants are potted except incarnata as its the only hardy one for zone 6.

Smurfy,

In my experience they do pretty well in pots. I keep the Nitrogen low, and Phosphorus and Potassium high.

Bob
