Passion Fruit 'Yellow’ (Passiflora ligularis)
Like most passionfruit vines, Passiflora ligularis is a vigorously growing thing of beauty. When passionfruit season nears, intrepid gardeners eagerly await the zany, amoeba-looking flowers that Passiflora ligularis produces as a sign of tropical euphoria to come. Native to Latin American countries like Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico, and Peru, Passiflora ligularis is as bold as fruiting vines get. Once you see the flower and taste the yellow passionfruit, you will never forget it.
Passiflora ligularis will thrive in a tropical highland forest climate, where the weather is neither too hot nor too cold. When grown beside other plants and vegetation, it has a tendency for aggressive overgrowth. With a little encouragement and the right conditions, Passiflora ligularis will add a charming sweetness to your garden’s tropical fruit harvest.
