    Ooohh!

    John,
    That sure is pretty! Is that hardy there? Just wondering.
    Happy Growing,

    Never experimented to see if it's hardy or not. We've always just put them in a greenhouse for the winter. I doubt it would survive here, but I have a little spot where I planted some Callas, years ago, and I forgot to take them up, in the fall. They came up in the spring, and have each year since.

    It is doubtful that it is hardy very far north of my zone.

    I really can't be sure, though, because the red one that I have in the ground just said 'red' passion flower, so I don't know the exact variety.

    I do know that they will sometimes survive a 5 gallon pot if rooted into the ground (two well rooted cuttings survived last winter like this), so John, you might try a well rooted cutting and see.

    Good luck and have FUN!

    They do get HUGE!

    Here is a picture... It is hard to get the whole thing in view, but I have to tell you that I will be moving some antique roses because they are now covered by this particular vine!

    Yep! Dies completely down to the ground, and pops up in various places just like the Incarnata.

    Wow, that is amazing. I've never tried to grow them in the gound here. Maybe I should.
