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 library and online research as well as observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We have also incorporated comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have some additional information, in particular if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Passiflora 'Coral Sea'.
