The white and blue exotic looking blooms on this hardy vine are nothing short of stunning. It flowers from summer through fall and brings multitudes of large orange fritillary butterflies to the garden, as its foliage is a food source for their larvae. A bit rambunctious for the small garden, it’s best suited for a support in a lawn where any emerging suckers can be easily removed. Hardy Blue Passion Vine is easy to grow, blooming best in full sun with ample water to keep the flowers coming. Our plant resprouts from the roots each spring and extends 15′ or more covering a rustic cedar arbor here at Bustani Plant Farm.
