Passiflora 'Coral Sea' (Passion Vine) - A vigorous vine with a long blooming period with coral-pink petals with purple filaments in the spring through fall. The lush medium green leaves have broad lobes. Will grow in shaded locations but needs full sun to bloom well. A great Passion Vine for coastal gardens but will not stand inland heat. This hybrid of manicata was created by Patrick Worley and we have grown this plant since 1983. It is similar to his cross 'Coral Glow' which reportedly tolerates more heat. Hardy to around 26 F - best with some overhead protection.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Passiflora 'Coral Sea'.
