Hi I'm Stan DeFreitas, "Mr. Green Thumb". If you are looking for an outstanding plant as a plant that you can use on a fence or on top of some type of a trellis you've got to think of the passion vine. Passion vines come in a number of different colors, some come in red, some come in a red orange or this one, and it?s an outstanding kind of a bluish purple color. It's one that you say where the passion fruit comes from. We've all had passion juice; well it comes from the passion fruit which comes after the flower. Of course if you want to have this one, just think if you had a whole fence row of these planted you would have something that people would be stopping at your door, saying gosh that's a beautiful plant. They're relatively easy to grow. Make sure they get full sun, improve the soil. Make sure that you water faithfully to get them started and you'll have to water them during the dry times because the foliage actually starts to wilt if it gets too, too dry. But it's a beautiful plant. If you've got an area where somewhat on the hot and dry side, well make sure you do give it enough water. It will do well, it doesn't take cold very well. So if you've got it in a very cold location put it into a green house or put it into an area where you can protect it. Maybe leave it in the container.
