Passiflora Incense is a very beautiful hybrid cross between Passiflora incarnata and Passiflora cincinnata. It is much more colorful than it's predecessor parents also bearing an edible fruit that is somewhat tart in flavor and most commonly used to make jellies and jams. The fruit conveniently drops from the vine when it is ripe and ready. The wonderfully abundant purple flowers are the main reason most folks grow this plant. They are 3"+ in diameter and very fragrant with musky incense like overtones that waft several feet from the flowers.
The Passiflora Incense is hardy in zones 5 - 11 where it is grown in the ground. The vine is very fast growing and can cover a fence or other similar item in just weeks of planting. Grows up to 30 feet in one season! It can be grown in pots and brought in for the colder months. This plant is very resilient and can withstand cutting back to just above the soil and quickly returning with new growth. Frost will kill it back to the ground, but it returns once the weather permits.
The plant I am selling is in a 4.5" plastic pot filled with my special 100% organic potting mix that I make myself. The plant will be growing on a 16" bamboo stick and is ready to be planted in the ground or suitable larger pot with something to climb on. This plant requires well drained soil, I suggest a very sandy substrate, it seems to work best. 80% sand with 20% compost is a good mix when planting in pots. It will grow in most well drained soils though, whether they are nutrient rich or nutrient poor. If more information is desired for planting and care of this plant I am more than happy to answer questions via email or phone.
