Maypop (Passion Fruit)

$25.97

Passionflowers are one of nature’s wonders. These attractive, vigorous vines produce breathtakingly complex and beautiful flowers. The spectacular flowers will brighten your yard and garden when they begin blooming in July and continue until frost.

Maypop fruits are greenish yellow with the delicious and sprightly taste of tropical Passionfruit pulp around the seeds. Maypop freezes to the ground in late fall and comes back in late spring, usually in early May (hence the name Maypop), so don’t be surprised that they’re coming up late.

Passionflowers like half day to full sun and well-drained soil. They can spread 8 ft or more and will quickly cover a fence or arbor. They can easily be grown in a container as well as planted in the ground.
