Description: Passionflower is an enchanting native wildflower that looks like it has come from a fairytale or a faraway land! Passionflower grows along a vine and blooms between mid and late summer each year. Passionflower prefers to grow in meadows in sandy soil and full sun to partly shady conditions, but can also be grown in a native garden or a pollinator garden. In ideal conditions, Passionflower will use its root suckers to colonize in open fields or meadows. This photo of a Passionflower was taken in the Native Grassland at Creasey Mahan.
