'Incense' passionflower is a very fast-growing vine that will get up to 10-20' in length, sometimes longer. This variety is a hybrid between two hardy passion flower species (Passiflora incarnata and P. cinnicata), and as a result, is very hardy itself, surviving temperatures below 0F. Flowers begin in spring and continue sporadically during summer and fall, occasionally all year round in South Florida and other tropical areas. The gorgeous blooms are large, up to 5" in diameter, with rich violet purple petals marked with darker shading, pale lavender filaments and pale greenish white stamens and carpels. The flowers attract birds (including hummingbirds) and bees. The flowers are self-sterile, so without pollinators, they should be hand-pollinated to obtain fruit. The tasty, edible fruit is a yellow berry, 1-3" in diameter.
This variety of passionflower grows well in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. It will tolerate some shade but more sun will result in more flowers. It is tolerant of drought. It may be used on trellises, arbors, walls or fences as long as there is a network of slender supports for the delicate tendrils to cling to.
