Purple Haze Perfume Passion Flower

Wednesday's Story

A U.F.O..?

It looks as if it has come from another world and is twirling around to make a landing. But it’s exotic, fragrant, and purple, so it must not be an Unidentified Flying Object. Instead I’ll call it a Unique Floral Oasis.

‘Purple Haze’ is a cross between P. caerulea x P. amethystina, with highly fragrant and unusual blooms from summer to early autumn. Its exotic flowers have a wide tubular base, 10 flat, reflexed, purple-mauve tepals, and a central stalk bearing the ovary and stamens surrounded by a ray of fleshy filaments with dark magenta, white and purple rings. Passion flowers are tendril climbers and produce yellow, edible fruits.
