Passion flower


By Magenta

I bought a passion flower last year, planted in a big pot and trained it around an oblisk, it was wonderful with flowers right until the autimn. Do I prune it back this year or will it grow from the growth it made last year please?



there evergreen Magneta, but you could cut off any dead looking branches and in a few year you will be cutting more off to keep it in check :) Beautifull climber, I dug mine out a couple of weeks ago, the Roots had burst through the pot (plastic) and were right across the border, im going to but another one, but red this time....

You can prune back a bit so that you can keep the shape of your obelisk but not too much so that new shoots are not distubed. Also during growth you can cut back new shoots that grow out of shape.
Good luck!
