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'.  Information displayed on this page about  Passiflora vitifolia 'Scarlet Flame' is based on the research conducted about it in our library and from reliable online resources. We also note those observations we have made of this plant as it grows in the nursery's garden and in other gardens, as well how crops have performed in our nursery field. We will incorporate comments we receive from others, and welcome to hear from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they share any cultural information that would aid others in growing it.
