Passiflora 'Maypop'

In a previous Jackson and Perkins catalog, I remember seeing a passionflower purportedly perennial in zones 4-5. I can't find it now, but it was called Maypop (passiflora incarnata). Could this be possible, or is this all advertising hype? I looked for it on another site, and it said hardy to zone 6. I'm in cold, snowy zone 5a. :0) Phyl

I've seen it listed as hardy to zone four myself. I've read post from people in zone 5 who state that they are growing it and it does return (usually in late May or early June. hence its name). I have tried once before to get one to establish here, but I wasn't too optomistic last summer as the plant never really grew well for me before frost set in. I'm more hopeful this year.

Good drainage and a sheltered site seem to be key to getting this plant to survive in colder regions.


btw....the main forum will get a question answered more quickly, this forum is generally reserved for people to post pictures of particular varieties...

Thanks so much Chills, for answering. I didn't realize when posting, that I was on the gallery site. :0) Phyl
