The Passion Vine is a rapid-growing, tendril-climbing vine which is woody in warm winter climates and herbaceous (dies to the ground) in cold winter climates. Its bark is green and smooth and coarsely grained for a beautiful natural look.
The Passion Vine features three-lobed, dark green leaves and three-lobed leaves that are 3-5 inches wide. It blooms fringed flowers (2-3") that have white petals, sepals and a central crown of pinkish-purple filaments. During the summer season, they’ll begin to bloom fragrant flowers as well as edible fruits called maypops. Ripened maypops can be eaten fresh off the vine or made into jelly.
