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 information is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of it in our nursery of crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we have visited. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Passiflora vitifolia 'Scarlet Flame'.
