Passiflora Seemannii is a very fast growing climber reaching a development of 7 meters. It attaches itself by means of tendrils which coil firmly around its support.
This passion flower gives rise to a multitude of purple-blue flowers with a striped crown of purple and white. The flowers are very fragrant and the fruits it offers are used in the drink recipe in its native range.
Be careful, this passionflower needs heat to bloom well. We advise you to cultivate it in a veranda or outside along a sunny wall but also on a pergola or a well exposed trellis.
