buds to bloom?

sradleyeAugust 2, 2013

I've just noticed some buds on my vines. I believe its passiflora incarnata. im very excited....and impatient, how long until I get flowers?

The buds will develop to the size of very large olives and burst open - this will be from 3 days to a week. Sometimes, I can catch them opening to their full bloom - awesome.

Congratulations--looks great. So you know, that is not P. incarnata, but appears to be the hybrid P. x belotii. It also goes by several other names, including P. alatocaerulea, as it is the primary hybrid P. alata x P. caerulea.

It is less hardy than P. incarnata, although I suspect the number given in the link below is too conservative.

It should be fragrant...

Here is a link that might be useful: Passiflora x belotii on Myles Irvine's site
