The Q&A Archives: Passiflora Pfordtii

Question: I have a Passion Vine growing on my fence that we planted last season. I bloomed in that first season, it has grown tremendously but the blooms this year die before they open and fall off. What could be wrong?

Answer: Flower bud drop is usually because the plants have too much Nitrogen. The plants will be growing very well but have either no buds or buds that drop off. Feed them with high potassium fertilizer. Also please note that almost all passiflora flowers last for just a day, but people often don't notice this because they are so free flowering.
