Passiflora ‘Constance Elliot’ is a delightful climber, bearing unusual white flowers, rather than the typical purple blooms associated with Passiflora caerula. As with other passion flowers, it has dark, glossy lobed leaves and bears egg-shaped, orange fruit in late-summer. Fast-growing, it’s a great choice for covering a south- or west-facing wall, and is easy to maintain. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit.
