Plant details

Found growing wild from Peru to Nicaragua, this stunning passion flower needs to be grown in a conservatory in the UK. From early summer to autumn, it produces bright red, bowl-shaped flowers which are set off beautifully by glossy, dark green leaves. The blooms are followed by downy, yellow-green, egg-shaped fruit. Plant in the conservatory border or in large tubs, using John Innes No 3 loam-based compost. During the growing season, water freely. In winter, keep on the dry side.
