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.  The information on this page is based on our research that has been conducted on this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in the nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Passiflora 'Coral Sea'.
