Provided with a trellis or climbing support, this beautiful passionflower is able to develop up to 20 metres long tendrils. Its leaves are deeply divided and 5-17 cm large in size. Single drooping, 5-10 cm wide, bright pink flowers develop during summer. The plant is growing rapidly almost to the point where it might endanger the native flora. It is, however, a rewarding pot or tub plant indoors, in winter gardens and on the terrace during summer within our regions. Its yellow, lengthy, about 10 cm long fruits look like small bananas, which is why the plant is also called “banana passion fruit” or “banana poka”.
