巴西耐寒的大花西番蓮Brazilian Passion Flower Vine (Passiflora caerulea)
Zone 5! They are the ones I really want! In the past, I have only seen the tropical ones (Zone 9) selling in the nurseies and garden centres. This year I decide to grow from seeds. After one month sitting in the freezer and then plant them in the supermarket mushroom container with some soil, I then place whole thing in a clear plastic bag. Daytime put near heat register so it is quite warm, put them in the fridge to keep cool at night before I go to sleep. They are in and out of my fridge for 2 weeks now, I saw the first sprout (the pink one)today!
冰箱冷凍了一個月後拿出來種在洋菇盒裡的淺土,再用透明塑膠袋紮起來放在溫暖的地方. 睡前再整包冰進冰箱冷藏. 早上再拿出來. 如此2周就可發芽,今天已有一顆有芽了!
I am amazed they can grow in pots. The ones I have seen here in Australia ramble over fences and take over sheds! Perhaps these are a dwarf variety. I’d love to know how yours grow. 🙂
I am curious too. I will keep posting the updates!
Good luck with them – I have seen them growing outside here in Seattle, WA, USA.
Thanks! I will post an update later.
i love this flower, especially the blue variety. I hope they will grow beautifully 🙂
Thank you! I hope so too! Now the seedlings are about 6 to 7 inches tall.
i bought once one of those plants, but it died… i’m sure you’ll have more luck than me, you seem to have a green thumb, unlike me 🙂
Well, we shall see, hope they will live over winter…it gets pretty cold here!
