Passionflower grows best in rich but well-draining soil. Plant in areas that receive at least four hours of full sun exposure. As a part of the Passifloraceae family, passionflower is a vining plant with many large, three-lobed leaves. It produces unusual bluish-to-purple feathered flowers, that are exotic and stunning in appearance. The leaves, stems, and flowers are collected and used for herbal tea and tincture making.
Passiflora incarnata vines can grow up to 15-30 feet long. The flowers will bloom through the summer, and in the second year they will produce tiny green fruit that is edible.
Seeds should be soaked in warm water for one to two days before planting indoors. After soaking, spread them over damp potting soil and pat the soil. Keep seeded pots in an indoor space that gets at least five to six hours of indirect sun exposure and be sure to keep the soil moist for germination. Seedlings can take anywhere from weeks to months to appear. Transplant young plants outdoors after the first sets of leaves start to show and outdoor temperatures exceed 50 degrees.
