Passionflower

Passionflower imbues a tropical feel to any garden, thanks to its gorgeous and intricate flowers that appear in a rainbow of colors. Most varieties of this fast-growing vine are perennial in the tropics, and they're wonderful annuals or houseplants in cold-winter climates. Because of its quick growth rate, passionflower is a top pick for growing on lattice to create a beautiful privacy screen all summer long.

Grow passionflower in a sunny spot with well-drained soil. Most grow better if they're too dry than too wet.
