‘Sunburst’ Passion Flower


Southeast America




Passiflora 'Sunburst' is a hybrid passionflower comes from two parents, P. gilbertiana and P. jorullensis . It is fast growing broadleaf evergreen vine with variegated foliage and orange flowers.

The flowers of this hybrid display the warm colours of the sun, there couldn't not have  been better name then 'Sunburst'. The orange colour of the corona is similar to that of the setting sun; in fact, it reflects the iconography and very symbolism of the solar disk with rays of light radiated into the sky. 

The sepals  have a bilobate shape, are long and narrow and end with two pointed lobes. The two lateral ribs are crossed on the blade by a lighter, creamy yellow line lying against an intense green background. Small yellow and green leaf glands mark the area between the two ribs.

Passiflora is a fast growing vine which grows upto 8' to 20' & produces abundant flowers in winters and continues to flower on and off through out the year. Buttflies are extremly fond of Passion flowers.


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.


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.
