Properties and uses:
The Passion Flower 'Perfume passion' has superb highly fragrant lilac- white flowers (lemony scent) from April right through to the end of the summer. This climber is very vigorous and grows rapidly once settled. Plant it at the base of a trellis or an arch, preferably sheltered from drafts. In the coldest areas, it is best to plant it in tubs and to keep it in a light, cool room throughout winter.
Finally, do not hesitate to prune your Passion Flower quite hard at the end of winter to encourage it to bush.
