Do I need to prune Passiflora incarnata and when?

Chesterfield,Virginia, United States Us

I planted 4 of these along the fence line last year and nothing! I thought they didn't make it. But wow! This year they just exploded, blooming from May until October.
I want to make sure I do all the right things to enjoy them year after year. Any feedback would be appreciated!

On plant Passiflora incarnata




I assume that the UK and the US are the same on this. (Except you have about 10 USDA zones and we have 4). Assuming you don't live in AL or FL then just feed them all year and WOW! Enjoy.

The Passiflora edulis is the truly edible Passiflora Luvtodig. The P. incarnata is not poisonous but the fruit is not really very nice that is why they are grown for their lovely flowers. It is unique in that it is the only type of Passiflora, and there are about 200 of them, that is not evergreen, it sheds all its leaves every year so wants trimming before coming back into growth.
