400029 Passiflora Lavender Lady

£3.99

'Lavender Lady' has such remarkable violet-purple blooms it appears to be transluscent or nearly glow-in-the-dark. 'Lavender Lady' was further hybridized by the American plant breeder Patrick Worley, and introduced in 1982. It was back-crossed Passiflora amethystina to the ultra-hardy Passiflora caerulea rendering 'Lavender Lady' the passion vine of choice for the more northerly gardens. The passion flower was given its name by missionary priests in South America who saw a resemblance between the flower and elements of Christ's passion. The ten flower segments were said to represent ten apostles (Peter and Judus were not included), the corona the crown of thorns, the five stamens Christ's five wounds and the three stigmas the three nails. 'Lavender Lady' is largely sterile, but will occasionally set fruit that is hollow or with only one small seed inside. The skin and pulp of the fruit are edible, but have to be fried or otherwise cooked as one would with green tomatoes, not being tasty raw.
