Description

Red Granadilla is an evergreen, flowering vine. Its height and spread varies depending on the structure it climbs on. The flower of Passiflora coccinea is a spectacular scarlet to deep orange color and generally reaches a width of 3 to 5 inches. Each unique flower lasts about one day appearing in the summer and early fall. The evergreen leaves are obovate in shape and have doubly serrate margins.

Fruits of Red Passion Flower are ovoid, orange or yellow in color, and are mottled green. Buttflies are extremly fond of Passion flowers.

Environment

Full sun, a southern exposure, is necessary for optimum growth and flowering. If flowers fail to open, it is usually due to insufficient light.

Bring the soil to a state of visual dryness between waterings. When watering, thoroughly saturate the soil until a little water runs out of the bottom of the pot. Growing in a clay pot will help maintain a healthy root system.

Landscape

Passiflora is widely cultivated as a wall-climber or as groundcover.

Flowering plants need access to bright sunlight to remain healthy and blooming. An easy facing balcony is the best place for the plants in Indian conditions. Try keeping them in bright sunlight but also where they get a little cover from the harsh afternoon sun. Some plants which are a little tender tend to burn due to the same.

Plants with thin leaves need daily watering and ones with thick leaves need watering 3-4 times a week. This will also depend on the season. Generally during the blooming period, plants love a lot of water. Try keeping the soil moist. During winters it is better to cut back on watering.

Keep the plants in a well drained soil with a drainage hole at the bottom. This will help to avoid over watering. Take care as to not leave stagnant water on top of the soil. Fertilise the plant once in 2-3 weeks during its blooming period. Do not fertilise it in winters.
