2.5Ft Rakhi Bel Passiflora incarnata Purple Krishana Kamal Annual Flowering Creeper Plant
buy passion flower plant online A large genus of several hundred species of climbing (with tendrils) plants nearly all from the New World, and most bearing fascinating flowers which must be amongst the most wonderful and beautiful to be found in the floral kingdom. Although recounted in most references to the genus, the story behind the name is still worth repeating here. The early Spanish missionaries in South America saw in the flower the instruments of Christ’s Passion – the central column (gynandrophore) represented the scourging post, the three stigmas the three nails, the five stamens the five wounds, the corona filaments the crown of thorns, the calyx the nimbus or halo of glory, and the ten petals the Apostles – Peter and Judas being absent. They are very easy to raise from seed and very vigorous – given half a chance, they will take over your greenhouse. They grow well in pots and flowers are often produced in succession throughout the summer. Passiflora Edulis is the common hardy edible passion fruit vine. It will produce very fragrant, unusual flowers which have white/cream base petals which sit beneath decorative filaments. These filaments blend outwards in stripes from deep aubergine purple to white, to violet tips, and surround the rather exciting three-pronged stigmas and lime anthers. The foliage is evergreen, shiny and deep green above, paler beneath. This climbing plant will grow up to 3m each year but will die back to root level in winter, not unlike a perennial plant. When grown outside they must be planted in shelter and in sun – or else Passiflora Edulis will scramble over other trees and shrubs to get it. Can be grown in containers for a standalone display, but look best against a trellis or a bare wall. Flowering March-September. Supplied in 8” pot. buy passion flower plant online at Jovialfloor because it was never been so much!
