Plant details

Constance Elliott' makes a beautiful, scented, white-flowered alternative to the common passion flower. Plants make rapid annual growth each year as this clings with tendrils, plants won't damage brickwork or fences but need suitable supports to grow on. Passion flower is in bloom from mid- to late summer and, after a warm summer, it is not unusual to find large orange-yellow fruits forming. These can be left on the plants for decoration. They are edible but do not have an outstanding flavour.

Good as far as it goes.....what about the spread? plant care such as pruning (I think it is pruning group 11 or 12)? propogation?
Sadly this is typical of information given on many web sites and books, wonderfully consistent in it's inconsistency
