The Q&A Archives: Passion Vine

Question: I planted a Passion Vine last yearto attract the Zebra Longwing. It's the 3-lobed variet, purple flowers, and initially it had a growth spurt. But now we're in the middle of summer and it's not doing anything. What can I do to encourage rapid growth?

Answer: Tim,

You can't control any plant responses to the heat of summer but you can provide adequate soil moisture and perhaps a little boost of fertilizer from a soluble product such as Miracle Gro, just don't fertilize it too much.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
