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'.  The information on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in the San Marcos Growers library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in our nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we may 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 vitifolia 'Scarlet Flame'.
