Passion Flowers need to be supported to be able to climb and thrive. Where possible place them next to a trellis or fence. They do not need to be pruned but it can help to encourage growth and keep the growing vine in control. In spring remove dead stems. Passion Flowers need to be watered especially during dry spells.
Passion Flower plants can be grown in containers and also planted in the garden. They are fast growing climbers that will thrive in both the full sun or partial shade. Their vigorous habit means that they can become a nuisance. They should be planted in soil that is moist and well drained with a pH level of 6.5-7.5. They benefit from having a layer of organic mulch in the soil.
