Passionate about Passionflowers

I'm crazy about passionflowers and was looking online recently for non-rampant cultivars or species. In the Sacramento area, the more cold-hardy forms can do a little too well under certain circumstances. This one, Passiflora tulae, attracted me with unusual form, clear pink and orange color combo and modest growth rate. Kartuz Greenhouses specializes in rare and exotic plants and offers a nice Passiflora selection, including this P. tulae. I'll report back on how it performs in my garden.
