This vine is viable as an evergreen specimen to 30 degrees F and must be mulched well if utilized as a landscape addition. The Red Passionflower can produce fruit if it is cross-pollinated by a second blooming plant. In its native habitat of Brazil, the people call this plant ouvaca meaning “Red Star.” The egg-shaped fruit is yellow to orange and said to be delectable. It is a stellar bee, butterfly, and hummingbird plant.
