Purple Passionflower is a fast grower, making it perfect for covering fences, trellises and arbors. It can be used to provide a shady canopy. It is best planted in full sun, but it can tolerate part shade.
Purple Passionflower can be grown in a 12" diameter pot. This is recommended to contain its rampant growth and encourage more flower and fruit production. It can also be grown as an indoor plant with a south-facing window.
