Passiflora 'Star of Surbiton' has pure white petals that form the backdrop for bright purple-blue filaments.
Passiflora 'Star of Surbiton' is a vigorous, very hardy passion flower that can be grown in containers or planted in the ground. It is evergreen down to -8 degrees Celsius and may be hardy beyond this into zone 8. The blooms are up to 12 cm in diametre and lightly scented. The broad petals are pure white and contrast dramatically with the bright blue filaments and pale pink centres. The fruits are large, decorative, and ripen to a yellow orange. Bury stems six inches deep to increase hardiness. Where not hardy, passionflowers can be grown as a patio plant in summer and a houseplant in winter. Plants bloom on a new wood so a hard prune can be given each spring.
