Hardly is there a flower that evokes a sense of the tropical more than the passion flowers. White, black and blue Passiflora caerulea is hardy in coastal BC, especially against a south facing wall or fence. Bury the stem 4-6 inches deep to increase hardiness. Plant in well-drained soil that is not too moist or too rich to promote more flowers and less greenery. Edible, but not the most tasty, yellow fruit are sometimes produced. Where not hardy, passionflowers can be grown as a patio plant in summer and a houseplant in winter. Plants bloom on a new wood so a hard prune can be given each spring.
