Ruby Glow Passion Vine is an intensely fragrant fall bloomer with large, deep iridescent, bright neon violet toned red flowers, with long bright blue to purple filaments. This plant is not a hybrid, although it was once commonly thought to be a varient of passiflora alta (Winged Passionflower), it is not, but rather is a naturally ocurring cultivar that is native to Peru. 

The Ruby Glow plant is fast growing with a strong, vigorous habit and large, strong, woody, stems.  It is easy to grow and quick to establish. The runners of Ruby Glow grow dense and full with large 3 to 5 lobed shiny green leaves.

Zone 9A (brief dips to the mid 20sºF is the Northern limit of the recommended Zone range for this plant, and it should be well protected from frost and freeze in 10 and 11 as well until it is very well established.

It is not self pollinating, but can produce fruit if cross polinated with other fertile cultivars.

Direct planting of 4 inch starter size plants is not recommended, so for the best results with your new plant, we recommend it be repotted and allowed to grow larger before setting out in a tropical to subtropical landscape. 

When the new pot has filled with roots and the plant is larger, then here a few hints for successful growing in the landscape in Zones 9, 10, and 11.  Passion Vines can be grown as a potted plant indefinitely.

  • Plant in fertile well draining, slightly acidic soil soil in the full sun. Amend with high quality organic material as needed.
  • Locate in full sun to very lightly dappled shade.
  • Provide a sturdy support for climbin.
  • Provide supplemental irrigation, but take care not to over water.
  • Feed a good quality, slow release, bloom boosting fertilize with the initial planting and twice yearly in the early Spring and early Fall thereafter. 
  • Supplement with a water soluble plant food in between feeding.
  • Prune lightly and often when young to encourage branching and after flowering to promote uniform shape and control size.
  • Considered root hardy in Zone 9A once very well established.  Protect well from frost and freeze while tender and young.
  • Spray if necessary to control over feeding by caterpillars will plant is becoming established.
