    Beautiful, almost other-worldly flowers on vigorous vines. Loves heat. Can survive some drought. I have grown this both in Phoenix, Arizona and currently in Tennessee.

    Passionflowers are a host plant for the Frittilary butterflies. They might partially defoliate the plant but I've never seen one permanently harmed. The butterflies then come back and add to the show when the plant is in bloom.
