    Passiflora edulis. -Purple Possum Passion Fruit Vine  

    Information below is only the potential the plant has. You will be receiving one plant between 3 and 8 inches in height shipped in a 3 inch deep pot.

    The evergreen Passion vine produces stunningly intricate flowers and highly aromatic edible fruit. Minimum low temperature is 25 - 30 F. Plant in full sun to part shade. Has medium water requirements. 

    Butterfly gardening: For butterfly gardening, be sure and plant in part shade. Passifloras are larval host plants to Zebra Longwing (Pictured as well as larval stage), Gulf Fritillary, Crimson Patch Longwing, Red-Banded Hairstreak, Julia Butterfly, and Mexican Butterfly. They will eat your plants up, but passifloras grow quickly enough that it should not be a problem as they can stay ahead of the larvae.
