The flowers of the Purple Passion Vine Inspiration are short lived, lasting only a day or two, but are showy and large (about 4 inches across) and have varying shades of varying shades of deep, electric, violet, blue and purple with a showy frill of long blue filaments in shades of lavender to blue.
Inspiration is a hybrid improvement of Incense developed by Roland Fischer in Germany.
It has similar small, slender 3 lobed pointed leaves in a muted medium green. and will begin blooming in the late spring to early summer, depending on night time temperatures.
This cultivar requires a bit more attention and care than some others, but the fragrance and intense bright color make it well worth the extra effort.
It is a favorite host plant of many butterfly species, and in fact is such an attractive host that over feeding can sometimes be a problem and control measures become necessary to avoid excessive damage.
Inspiration will readily set fruit when and if there are other pollinators nearby, or if pollinated by hand from a different type. It is not self pollinating and seldom sets fruit in a solitary setting.
