Need your help on which to order

Hi there. I am ordering some passion vines and would like to hear your input. I have a fence that I want to cover - wooden. I love vines - and I just can't choose. I would like to have a few - not just one that takes over everything. Let me know if you have any suggestions. I really appreciate it. Thank you!

IMHO, Lady Margaret is the Queen of Passifloras - she blooms from early spring thru frost, NON-STOP! Mine had 20-50 blooms PER DAY all summer long, and she was in a 10" hanging basket - marvelous show!

RE: Need your help on which to order

I have not tried Lady Margaret but we have a Vitifolia growing on our fence.It is winter (root) hardy here.Blooms with large flushes every 6 weeks or so.Maybe I need to try LM in a hanging basket.That sounds super.

RE: Need your help on which to order

Incense, Caerulea, lavender lady, maybe an edulis or 6.. Your in Florida? Then platyloba, quadrangularis.. Biflora, seemannii, victoria...

Maybe get one of the passionflower books & pick the ones you want, then spend a couple years trying to get ahold of them.

Or, get a couple & cross them- Make your own. Or maybe I'm just all ga-ga over a piece of fence to cover.. With 75+ varieties I don't have any more fence space left.

RE: Need your help on which to order

My Lady Margaret and sunburst both bloomed continuously all summer and fall this year. I bought a 'Jeannette" variety at the same time and although it is the same size as the others I got no blooms on that one yet. I like the p. alata., the caerulea(for hybidizing purposes), and basically all purples, pinks and blues :)
