Default passion flower / fruit

Has anyone above the zone 6/7 line ever successfully grow passion flowers and fruit in a container? I have read that it can be but my hangup with it is what do I do with it when I bring it in the house? I cant just drag a 10-15 foot multi-vine into the front living room like I can my SDC.
All Q's, comments, and help is greatly appreciated.

Thanx!
Shaggy

I'm growing some passionflowers from seed. I got the seeds from the fruit of my brother's vine and it's been growing outside for a very long time. So I'd say it was fairly hardy. I don't know what the UK zone equivalent is, sorry, but it gets quite chilly.

Some people say they are difficult to propogate from seed, but I think they need some cold stratification.

I planted seeds from a fruit I bought last year. They grew outside in a big concrete pot. I dug them up, cut them back & brought them inside. They only grew a little - sort of dormant, & now will go back out in a few weeks. Don't know what kind & I hope to get flowers this summer.

But Lorax, p. caerulea is very cold hardy. We grew it outside in England under snow. Can't think what zone we were then unfortunately.

Passion vines ,from what I have read,do well in containers. Prune it before taking it indoors.

Passiflora incarnata is native to your area. Even if you want to bring it inside for the winter, it will already set fruit by that point.

Passiflora incarnata: - isn't that the same as Maypop? They are s'posed to be the most cold hardy passie, only to zone 5 but only in mild winters & heavily mulched.
I ordered a seedling one year - 6 " high & planted it inground in spring & it grew & made some beautiful flowers but not long enough season for fruits. It died over winter. S'posed to be hardy in zone 5 & I mulched it but it died.

My Maypop (P. incarnata) did nothing the first year, some leaves and maybe 6 ft. of vine. Last year it showered us with flowers and even a few fruit, but they didn't ripen. (P. caerulea has died twice). Be careful what you wish for, my maypop now has taken over about 8 ft of fence and even grows in the lawn!

Thanks for the info guys.....I was doing some reading and thought that I could grow Maypops. I have about 120 feet of 6 foot tall chainlink fence I'd like to do something with...Even though (according to 1990 Zone map) I'm on the 5b/6a border, the temps here rarely ever go below 0 (in my area, the chance of going below 0 is the same as going above 100). So, I figured I could order an already rooted plant and try it this year and see what happens by next summer.
I was even thinking of trying out the giant granadilla (read somewhere it was hardy to z6) and seeing what happens.

I belong to a passiflora group on face book and grow several variates.
Maypop is a common name given to vines native to the mid Atlantic states
i however do not believe it is the variety (P. incarnata) memory fails me as to what it's given name is all get back to you all on that
i have Galapagos, and arnata Ruby Glow, as well as Pura Vita Red and Lavender lady which i do not recommend its highly invasive and i have to hack it back I just don't think its flowers are all that nice now that one by the way is vary hardy to zone 5 I'm trying to get some of the good eating kinds but there aways sold out at my favorite on-line nursery

this is the one i want for fruit its a truly sweet and beautiful vine:
Passiflora Edulis Black Beauty produces sweet, delicious purple-black passion fruits. This vine is beautiful but usually is grown for the fruit, that are exceptionally sweet. This vine produced 30 to 40 of these beautiful The vine grows to about 20' and is pretty much pest free.


heres a link to a site that has every thing you could ever want to know about Passiflora this guy is considered just about the most knowledgeable Passiflora researcher in the world

Passiflora - Passion flowers - Passion flower

now i have had some trouble with this Lady's seeds but ever one els tells me there vary fresh so you decide for your self

I'd like to grow that too. If I can't find a plant would mind saving some seeds for me?

Sure. I buy the fruits by the 25-unit sack when they're at market, so I should end up with lots of seeds!

If I send you less than 20g of seeds in a regular envelope, both postal systems will treat it like a letter.

Lorax - importing seeds into the USA through the US postal system is banned, and they check for them. I have had a number of small packages of small seeds destroyed - ask Mskitty et al! Unbelievable but true!
