Passiflora 'Purple Tiger' A tropical looking vine with winged stems and large rounded waxy leaves and very large sweetly-scented flowers that appear over a long period from late spring to fall. These flowers have dark red petals with fleshy banded purple and white corona filaments that are wavy toward the tips and can be followed by 6-8 inch long, 3-5 inch wide large yellow fruit if conditions are right and cross pollinations has occurred. This hybrid, created by Patrick Worley in the mid 1990's, was the result of crossing Passiflora phoenicea 'Ruby Glow' with P. quadrangularis, a cross sometimes listed as P. decaisneana. Plant in full sun to light shade in a warm garden and give regular irrigation. Hardy to around 30 F so this plant should be planted in near frost free gardens. This plant is similar to P. phoenicea. 'Ruby Glow' but has larger flowers that appear for a longer period, though foliage is lighter in color.  The information displayed on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations that we have made of it growing in the nursery's garden and in other gardens, as well how it has performed in our crops out in the nursery field. We will incorporate comments that we receive from others as well, and welcome hear from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they have knowledge of cultural information we do not mention that would aid others in growing Passiflora 'Purple Tiger'.
