Passion Flower

Cuttings of the young shoots strike readily in sandunder glass. The plant likes a good loamy soil mixed with peat. A sheltered position with a south or south-western aspect should be assigned those grown out of doors, and the root should be

well protected in winter. The flowers are borne on seasoned growth of the current year: this fact must be considered when pruning the plants. During the hot months the roots require a copious supply of water, and the foliage should be syringed freely. Passiflora Caerulea is fine for outdoor culture, and Countess Guiglini makes a capital greenhouse plant.
