Vigorous and spectacularly climbing, this polyploid hybrid attaches itself thanks to its tendrils.
Evergreen in mild winter regions, semi evergreen in colder areas, it must be protected at temperatures of under -8°C.
The leathery foliage, made up of 3 to 5 lobes with pronounced veins, is shiny and of an attractive dark green.
From May until the frosts several flowers appear daily. They can reach 13 cm in diameter, have a white corolla with shades of lilac and the filament crowns are beautifully dark violet purple and blue. The scented flowers last several days.
Fruits are rare.
Very decorative during the whole summer, RIVERSIDE® 'Damsel's Delight' covers walls and trellises and can also be pot-grown.
Passionflowers need light, whether they're inside or outside. They must be protected from the wind and the cold, except in a warm climate.
Cutting back in the spring or before wintering is recommended to maintain a manageable size. Remove any weak growth and reduce the main stems to under 1 m long.
