This hybrid of two South American passion vine species is outstanding for a trellis placed in a large patio container or a smaller support in a seasonal bed. The huge (4″-5″) fragrant blooms sport sepals that alternate white and pinkish violet, and have double-ranked purple filaments in the center. As an interspecific hybrid, its flowers are sterile with no fruit or seed produced, enabling it to continue blooming freely throughout the season. It grows best in full sun in an organically amended soil with ample moisture. This vine is sometimes listed at the cultivar ‘Pfordtii’.
