Passiflora incarnata-Maypop Passion Flower

Passiflora or Passion Flower isn’t really a perennial, more like a climbing woody plant, but it can be propagated by cutting or by digging up the suckers that form around the base of the parent plant in the spring in warmer climates, southeast, it is deciduous and dies or can be back to the ground after frost. It blooms from August through September with various colors, purple, yellow-orange, pink, red, blue, and white. It can be used to screen unsightly areas with a trellis and butterflies are attracted to its blooms and is one of the few plants that prefers poor but well draining soil in full or partial sun.
