Passiflora vitifolia 'Scarlet Flame' (Red Granadilla) - Leaves are three-lobed to the middle of the leaf and are up to 6 inches long. The petals are a reddish orange and the inner filaments are a bright red. Flowers bloom in spring through summer. Full sun, regular watering. We received this plant as Passiflora coccinea but it was determined that it was really Passiflora vitifolia and for many years we sold it under this name. Recently we were told that this hardier larger flowering plant is a hybrid between Passiflora vitifolia and P. coccinea that was developed by Patrick Worley for the Southern California area. He named it 'Scarlet Flame'.  This description is based on our research and the observations we have made of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have 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 vitifolia 'Scarlet Flame'.
