PASSION FLOWER GOING WILD

I have 2 passionflower plants in my garden, the passiflora caerulea and the passiflora constance eliott. But the caerulea is comming up everywhere, the birds like to eat from the passionfruit and drop seeds in the garden and  voilà,you have a strong growing new plant, they are everywhere, despite the heathwaves we have had.

THE END

It is that time of the year again, the part I don’t like as now we have to wait for 7 months before Spring arrives ! It is time to spent with my indoorplants and give them a little tlc. Summer was odd to say the least, it started really late and then we had a few weeks of hot weather, but now the Summer has ended and we had the first night frosts. So I have been busy to put the tender plants inside eventhough some are still blooming nicely.

The sedum spectabile is one of the last plants to bloom in my garden and the passionflowers ofcourse.

Here are a few pictures.

PASSIFLORA CAERULEA IS ONE OF THE STRONGEST PASSIONFLOWERS FOR THE NORTH OF EUROPE AND BLOOMS FOR A VERY VERY LONG TIME.

THE WHITE CONSTANCE ELLIOTT IS LESS HARDY BUT WITH A BIT OF PROTECTION IT WILL OVERCOME A HARD WINTER

 

Have a nice day all and thanks for visiting.
