Passiflora sanguinolenta - Blood Red Passion Vine

Passiflora sanguinolenta is a small passion vine, even at that it is capable of covering a fair amount of fence. This cultivar has 1.5 inch pink blossoms rather than the red of the native species. Passiflora sanguinolenta is native to the mountains of Equador. The pink passion vine is hardy with temperatures into the mid-twenties which will allow Passiflora sanguinolenta to flourish where many other Passion vines fail. Passiflora caerulea is even more hardy. Passiflora sanguinolenta blooms from Spring through Fall. Passion vines have interesting methods of spreading pollen. And intriguing egg mimic appendages to fool butterflies that wish to deposit their eggs.
