Can you stand it?! This is some serious plant glam coming at you. May I introduce Passiflora 'Purple Tiger'. One of the most incredible blossoms I have ever seen. Look closer.
It's like some trippy sea anemone or better yet some beautiful but dangerous tropical fish minus the danger.
This tropical looking vine has large vibrant foliage and produces these amazing blossoms. The blossoms are about the size of a fist. Punching you with some serious passion! Rich ruby red petals with an explosion of purple and white tiger striped filaments of fascination. I can hear a Sade song in the background.
It likes warm climates and dislikes it when the temps drop below 30 degrees. But I gotta tell you whether you grow it as an annual (purchase it already growing and blooming) or as a perennial rambling vine, the look you get when these flowers bloom is incredible! It's almost too much but factor in a sweetly scented fragrance and you have a quiet storm of seductive floral tropicália.
