Passiflora 'Snow Queen' will imbue radiance in your garden with its snowy white blooms, which contrast beautifully with their purple and green stamens. A wonderful take on the traditional Passion Flower, 'Snow Queen' is ideal for embracing some cooler colours in your garden. The foliage is equally as luscious, and thanks to its tendrilling habit, will happily grow up a pergola, trellis, or wall. Semi-evergreen, this tendrilling climber will keep it's leaves through milder winters too!
As we recommend with all plants, you should regularly water your Passion Flower once planted, ideally for the next few months. Come winter, these waterings can be reduced.
When planting, dig a hole twice the circumference of the pot. Ensure that the pot sits roughly level with the soil, with the graft point above the soil. Fill the remaining space with a mix of compost and garden soil. Make sure that you firm down the soil, but not so you are compressing it down.
When it comes to feed, less is more for your Passion Plant. Regular feeding can actually encourage excessive greenery, as opposed to flowers! Only feed if your plant is growing a little too weak, preferably with an all purpose fertiliser.
Despite their exotic appearance, Passion Flowers are very easy to grow! Their growth and output will likely be excellent providing you follow our planting and care instructions. Below we address some common query topics:
- Hardiness: Hardy plants, Passion Flowers will cope well in the UK climate. However, we recommend planting them in a sheltered site so they are safe from cold, drying winds.
- Position: Passion Flowers will be perfectly happy in either full sun or dappled shade. If you are growing your Passion Flower in a south-facing greenhouse, provide some shade as their leaves can become scorched.
- Soil: Your Passion Flower will appreciate most types of soil, but we suggest moderately fertile, well-drained soil with a good degree of moisture.
