The Purple Tiger passion flower vine boasts huge, fragrant, almost gaudy, 6” flowers with red petals and purple striped filaments. It has a coarse textured vine with bright lime green leaves. While the flowers are worth the wait, this vine can be slow to bloom, and may not bloom the first year if the vine does not get big enough. Once it does start flowering though it blooms consistently. It is likely to bloom only in the late summer and fall for most people. It is a very large heat tolerant plant, but it does not grow as rapidly as many Passiflora do.
