Why We Love It

You'll be seeing stars with the tropical blooms of Passiflora 'Constance Elliot'.

From July to September this vigorous climber is covered with distinctive white flowers – a star-shaped outer layer of petals surrounds an inner layer of long feather-like petals and a purple and yellow centre.

These bright nectar-rich flowers attract bees to your garden while elliptical orange fruit brings colour to the plant's dark foliage in late summer.

How to Plant

This passion flower is easy to grow, though keep an eye out as it will spread quickly – it can reach up to 12 m tall, which makes it perfect to cover a wall or fence. It's happy in a container, especially in cold climates, where it should spend the winter indoors.

Into the Ground

You'll need some organic matter, bonemeal and your spade.

  1. Dig a hole twice as wide as the rootball.
  2. Loosen the soil and mix in some organic matter.
  3. Gently loosen the plant's roots.
  4. Place it into the hole, with the top of the rootball level with the top of the soil.
  5. Refill the hole, adding some bonemeal.
  6. Firm the soil. Water well. Add mulch.
Into a Pot

You'll need a suitable container with drainage holes, some compost and your spade.

  1. Cover the drainage holes in your container with stones or pieces of broken pot.
  2. Add compost to your container.
  3. Loosen your plant's roots.
  4. Place it in the container, ensuring the top of the rootball will be level with the top of the compost.
  5. Fill the container.
  6. Firm the soil. Water well and add mulch.
