Stunning, large pinkish-red flowers with purplish filaments speckled with white, and a dark maroon center. Crimson Tears does not appreciate excess heat and flowers best in cooler weather. It will drop buds in hot weather, and flowers the most throughout the spring and fall, but may flower intermittently throughout the year. If you are growing the vine in a hot environment, partial shade to full light shade is best. It is a large vine with attractive, bright green, lobed leaves, and is suitable for either ground or container planting. It is much more fussy and difficult to grow than many Passiflora, but it’s stunning flowers are well worth the hassle.
