Riverside Hybrids

Passiflora 'Poppet'
UK
Min 4°C 40°F
Flowering period June-Nov.

Passiflora 'Poppet' is a free flowering hybrid with beautiful pastel flowers.
Suitable for container growing or in the ground in a very sheltered location.

Passiflora 'Poppet' is a very complex cross. It can come through quite a hard winter outside but will struggle to regrow so is better overwintered in a greenhouse or conservatory.

Named in honour of my dear friend Linda 'Poppet' Grover, above.
