Passionflower, Purple (Passiflora edulis), packet of 20 seeds

Family:  Passion Flower (Passifloraceae)
(Purple Passion Fruit, Purple Grenadilla)

Subtropical vine native to South America.  Perennial in frost-free areas, herbaceous perennial in the temperate north, hardy to at least 20 degrees F.  Deep mulching and excellent drainage/solar exposure will improve hardiness.  The stems and leaves of this plant make a sedative and dreamy tincture, medicinally interchangeable with Passiflora incarnata.  Purple passionflower flowers in the second year and produces fruit by the second or third year.  The fruit itself is of low acidity and one of the preferred types for eating (edulis means "edible"). Plant prefers full sun and  trellis.  These can be trained up a sunny wall on the porch to give seasonal shade, and the flower display is a big plus.  Soak seeds in a jar of water placed in the bright sun for a week or so, then plant about 1/2 inch deep in fast-draining mix and keep very warm.  Germination in about 22 days.  Good subject for lights or bottom heat.  The plant can easily grow to 20 feet, with hundreds of delightful fruits. 
Open Pollinated
