PASSIFLORA or PASSION FLOWER

Grown in sandy loam and peat in well-drained place against a sunny wall, a splendid show may be expected of this picturesque, free-flowering plant, particularly if by putting crocks around the roots their run is restricted. They do equally well in the greenhouse. In the open plant out in March, and water well in hot weather. Each winter prune back to 3 or 4 buds of the old wood, and in spring snip off frail shoots. Increase by cuttings of young shoots taken during the summer and struck under glass or cloche. Passiflora caerulea bears fragrant blue flowers from June to September. Constance Elliott is white and P. Allardii white shaded pink.
