Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Passiflora edulis 'Frederick' is a fast growing evergreen climber, potentially reaching 9m (29ft). The unusual, wispy fronds on the white and purple blooms make an unusual change from normal pasion flowers and these will cover his plant from late spring onwards. The flowers will later produce yellow/orange fruit in the autumn to further extend the range on interest. Grow in large containers on the pation, trained up an obelisk, so that it can be moved indoors to a greenhouse or conservatory over the winter.Height: 8m (26’). Spread: 2m (6.5’).

Culinary note: The fruits of passiflora are edible, albeit somewhat unremarkable in taste. They can be used in preserves and desserts. P. edulis, grown under glass will produce the best fruit for eating. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Plant Passion flower plants into any moist, well drained soil. Choose a sunny position that is protected from cold winds in winter. Prior to planting, add plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil. When growing passion flower, be sure to provide the twining stems with an appropriate support such as trellis or wires attached to fences and pergolas.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season. In autumn, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant. Pruning Passion flowers is best undertaken in spring. Prune out the oldest stems, and reduce the remaining stems to restrict their vigorous growth to the available space.
