Passionflower Deadheading question

lighter(z9 TX)April 26, 2005

This is a really dumb question but.... should I deadhead my passion vine? Should I treat it like a flowering plant to keep it blooming? Or should I just let the flowers die and fall off naturally. I just like their flowers and want as many of them as I can b/c they don't last that long.

You can, but it won't help flower production. 'Least i'll be really suprised if it does as in my expierence, if a passionflower is going to bloom it does it on the new groth, and the blooms will come from each leaf juncture.

So the bigger your vine & thus the more new growth... The more flowers you will have.
