Passiflora sanguinolenta

 
Passiflora sanguinolenta
passionflower
Common name passionflower
Family passifloraceae
Life cycle perennial (Z8-10)
Flowers rose-pink (spring-fall)
Size vine to 9'
Light sun-part shade

Smaller-growing passionflower with wing-shaped leaves and 1.5-inch flowers that open from upright tubular dark coral buds. The flowers are not as intricate or spectacular as those of many other passionflower species, but have their own quiet charm. The species is native to the mountains of Ecuador, so it is not as much of a tropical heat-lover. Reports of hardiness vary – it seems likely that top growth will perish if winter temperatures dip much below freezing, but roots may be hardy to lower temperatures. I planted ours on the east side of our home, where it will receive sun for the first half of the day. I'm hoping it will cover a small trellis by our patio, where a honeysuckle never thrived and eventually gave up the ghost.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: foundation border
