Hi,

What is the most fragrant passion flower and are they worth growing for fragrance alone?

Thanks.

Well, it's hard to how you could grow passionflowers and ignore their color and fantastic form -- but from a friend who grows over 100 varieties, mooreana is the most fragrant, with a heavy, gardenia scent.Helleri is reputed to have a very strong honey fragrance, but it only blooms in winter.

I'd say fragrance is a good reason to grow alata-caerulea, and many of the larger species (alata, phoeneciana, quadrangularis, triloba, etc.) and their hybrids are very fragrant.

Have you posted over on the passie forum to see what they say?

Incense is my most fragrant, though incarnata is a close second (and since it blooms more freely it frequently overtakes Incense)

Can you really notice a fragrance permeating the air - or do you have to sink your nose into the flower to sniff a "somewhat" aroma. I want real fragrance that I can sniff when I walk out the door. If not that smelly - I'll plant some other vine. I am counting on your noses performing as I don't want a ho-hum fragrance.
