    Default Passion flower hybrid - Passiflora 'Incense'

    I just bought a Passiflora 'Incense' (incarnata x cinnicata), as a fall discount plant. I needed to replace my Maypop P. incarnata plant that got accidentally thrown out during its winter dormancy, which I grew on the patio. Passiflora 'Incense' purfumes the whole room. I love the frills!
    I'll have to grow it indoors because its not hardy here, or give it a dormancy in the garage. Anyone grow passion plants indoors?

    I just found out on google that plants of this cross may all be virused, either with Cucumber Mosaic Virus or Passiflora Latent Virus. It doesn't affect the plant too much so it remains in cultivation. Don't know if mine is affected, but i'll have to be careful. Remakes of the cross were done.

    That is cool, Fren. I have grown this over the spring/summer outside and even got fruit, but can never get it to come back. My folks, who live further south, can't get rid of it. They pull it up, mow it down and it keeps coming back. I hope yours does well for you.

    Cheers,
    BD

    It gets very large growing outside here. I would not want to bring that into the greenhouse - lol.

    Very nice Fren! I tried one indoors without success. Well let's say it was a bug magnet and I treated it and gave it away
