Adding an exotic touch to the garden, Passiflora 'Lavender Lady' is a vigorous evergreen climber with dusky lavender flowers, 4 in. wide (10 cm), adorned with a ring of rich violet-purple pointed filaments surrounding the green fleshy reproductive structures. The abundant blooms are followed by egg-size deep orange fruits from late summer through fall. Since 'Lavender Lady' is largely sterile, it tends to produce mostly hollow fruits - so don't count too much on eating them. The foliage consists of deep blue-green three lobed leaves which create a perfect backdrop for the flowers. 'Lavender Lady' is a pretty hybrid Passiflora resulting from a cross between Passiflora amethystina and the very hardy Passiflora caerulea. It is often confused with Passiflora 'Amethyst'.

  • Blooms intermittently throughout the year with a peak bloom season in spring and fall in warm weather areas, late summer to early fall elsewhere.
  • Thrives in full sun or part shade, in loose sandy or gravelly, moist, well-drained soils. Good drainage is essential. Go light on fertilizer and water deeply, but infrequently. Passion Flowers should be encouraged to reach deep into the earth for water. This prompts them to develop a powerful root system that will sustain them through droughts and freezes. Do not provide too much manure or compost or this will result in lush vegetative growth and poor flowering. Keep the soil on the dry side in the winter. Some drought tolerance once established.
  • Easy to grow, this Passion vine can quickly grow up to 10-30 ft. long (3-9 m). Don't try to train your Passion Flower to be too neat and compact. The branches allowed to hang loose and droop a bit will be the ones most inclined to flower.
  • Excellent choice for trellises, walls, fences or arbors. Perfect in wall-side borders, city gardens, cottage gardens, Mediterranean gardens and containers.
  • Butterflies are extraordinarily fond of Passion Flowers.
  • The terminal buds may be pinched out to encourage branching.
  • Propagate by seed, semi-hardwood cuttings or by layering in spring or fall.
  • This vine blooms on new growth and should be pruned in late winter or early spring. No regular pruning needed. However trimming may be required to keep them to the space available, removing as much from the longer shoots as necessary.
  • Ingestion of some parts may cause severe discomfort
