Description

Passiflora caerulea 'Waterloo Blue' has exotic-looking blue and white flowers with white and purple filaments. Also known as Passion Flower, Passiflora caerulea is a fast growing, aggressive perennial vine with tentacle-like projections and attractive deep green, finger-like, evergreen foliage. Waterloo Blue' is a long-blooming variety.

Passiflora caerulea produces numerous underground runners that shoot up over a wide spread area. We strongly suggest planting it in a large container to control its spread. Passiflora 'Waterloo Blue' must have strong support. It may be pruned to reduce its size or to produce a better form.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
