Passiflora Caerulea



Passiflora caerulea, the blue passionflower is a flowering plant.  It is the most glamorous climber with a very unusual flower, which looks quite exotic.


We have it growing on a trellis with a seat built in.

Here it is taking over the evergreen.
This plant strives in full sun or part shade.  Good drainage is important.
Butterflies, bees and hummingbirds are attracted to this lovely flower.



This year, I noticed there was yellow fruit growing on our Passion Vine.
I read that once the fruit is fully ripe, it is edible.  Eating under ripened fruits can cause a stomach ache. A tea can be made from the flower told to alleviate stress and anxiety.

  3. This vine is quite exotic, and beautiful! I love the covered trellis and seat. How fun it produces a fruit but I wouldn't eat it for fear of a tummy ache

  4. What a pretty, pretty flower. Of course, it would not grow in our climate. I love the exotic flowers that grow in really warm climates.
    Hope you are doing well,my sweet friend. xo Diana

  5. Very pretty, Linda! The colors are quite unusual. I wonder if it might be related to the clematis? It certainly reminds me of that flower! Your year round warmer climate is probably conducive to staying green and in bloom which is really nice for gardeners!
