Passion vines, they look tropical, but they are not!
Passiflora caerulea is definitely a flower that looks like it belongs in Florida or Hawaii and MAYBE can be grown as a potted plant if your lucky. And while this fact is true for many other Passifloras it is not true for P. caerulea The flowers look beautiful on this Passion vine and they are definitely hardy to zone 7 and even lower. Believe it or not, there are other hardy Passion vines (also known as Maypop) with much nicer blooms then my P. Careulea. So do some research because, these are great vines for your tropical garden, or even your native garden because some species happen to be native to the USA!
