      A really crazy flower, so tropical looking though does grow outside in a sheltered position.

      1. Yes, they have a HUGE one all along the back fence 🙂 I love some of the other varieties they have in the Glasshouse at Wisley!

    Just the name is enough to draw one to this stunning flower. Such beautiful photos. I look forward to more. I found you on the A to Z Challenge list. See you in April!

      Hi Sammy, thanks for stopping by. Not long until the challenge starts now! It is going to be a busy month 🙂

  2. Jude, your blog is lovely! I had a passion flower when I lived on the Alabama Gulf Coast in the U.S. It was a beautiful and prolific bloomer that did a great job of hiding an ugly spot at the back of my house.

      Thank you for your lovely comment Cheryl. These gorgeous flowers do seem to make a good job of concealing ugly fences very quickly. I must try growing one!
