The passiflora is native to northern Argentina. In tropical and subtropical regions, it is a well-known plant because of its sweet fruits, also known as the passion fruit. Delicious passion fruits appear as early as the first year after flowering. The fruits taste fresh and sweet and sour. Besides giving delicious fruits, the plant also grows unusual, large flowers. These flowers grow from July to September. This is followed by the fruit from about September to October.

Furthermore, they are ideal plants for in a pot but can also be planted in the open ground. Passiflora plants can grow up to 3 or 4 meters. Also, the passiflora is very attractive to bees and butterflies.
