This listing is for one packet of Purple Maypop (Passiflora incarnata) seeds. Each packet contains roughly 10 seeds. For best germination of native species, remember to start or scatter seeds October-January!

A.k.a. purple passion flower.  This is a well behaved vine in Indiana because we're on the northern edge of it's range. It dies back to the ground most winters here and needs a protected, south-facing place to climb. A loose layer of extra leaf/twig mulch in winter (not too much) is probably going to be welcome. 

"This tropical-looking, climbing vine boasts truly spectacular flowers: white petals provide a backdrop for a fringe of striated violet, white, and lavender filaments. Erupting from the center are antenna-like pistils which will set edible fruits. Purple Passion Flower is one of the host plants of the Mexican Fritillary butterfly and the Variegated Fritillary butterfly. It can set roots aggressively in the right conditions and will require special care to successfully overwinter north of USDA Zone 5."
