Cultivations Advice.

Passion flower likes moderately fertile, well-drained but reliably moist soils. It will thrive in any soil type and is not fussy about acidity or alkalinity. Full sun or dappled shade is best, with shelter from cold, drying winds. A south, south-west or west-facing wall is ideal.
If growing passion flower in a south-facing glasshouse or conservatory, shade from direct sunlight may be needed to prevent the leaves from scorching.
Passion flower tends to flower particularly well when roots are restricted, such as in a container or path side border. When planting in a container, use either John Innes No 3 potting compost, or good quality peat-free compost.
