30 Jun 2019 • This may not be the most beautiful photo but it makes me inordinately happy 😃 I thought I’d lost my #passionflower-incarnata over the winter but decided to leave the dead stems so that the #rhodochiton (that did survive 🤷‍♀️) had something to climb up, but...look closely... 💜

When I went through my photos the other week mine was flowering into December (the one that died 😞). My Incense is looking slightly better now I've moved it though, so I'm a bit more hopeful for next year. Yours has done so well 😍😍

The heart shaped leaf is from a different plant (rhodochiton) which I put in the pot at the same time, as I wasn’t exactly expecting much from the passion flower as it’s just its first year 💚 @pottybird42

Not much longer now. I look forward to seeing what colours it will be. I used to think passionflower came in two colours white with purple and all whute but now I'm discovering all these different varieties 😍😍

1w
comment
awomanonabike

The reason I chose this one was not for the colour but because it is the hardiest of them all. I’ve tried growing standard passion flower before but lost it in our cold wet winters. So really hoping I can keep this going in a deep pot in a sheltered spot... @ublaszko

1w
comment
ublaszko

Yes, it's the wet cold that's the enemy of our plants. I was surprised mine survived this year because I pruned it harshly in February (after some misguided advice 😅) and the spot it's in is shaded in winter and I had the impression it was waterlogged too 😶 I think maybe it helped that I've been mulching it thickly for the past 2 years.

Well done Urszula. A thick mulch will certainly have made a difference but you’re right it’s that combination of wet and cold that’s he killer @ublaszko

comment
columbiariver

It's not the same, but I have a bean climbing on garden twine to an upstairs window. If you used twine it won't show, but not sure if the weight of passion would make it droop before it gets to your top wire. I think it would work.

1w
comment
sadieberg

Can you (or a handy helper) reach the wire? If you can get to it, tie some twine to the wire, stretch it down to the pot and peg it down then the passion flower will climb up the twine to the wire.

1w
comment
awomanonabike

Thank you Laura and Vivien. I was thinking of tying twine to the spirals but of course pegging it down to the pot would work (& look) much better. The wires are only a couple of feet beyond the spirals as the roof slopes down here, like half a gable end, sort of 🤔😜 @columbiariver @sadieberg
