Incarnata Maypop Passiflora Plant Care Instructions: Keep the plant well-watered for the first 3-4 weeks. After that, only water if the plant starts looking droopy. Although each flower only stays open one day, it keeps producing new flowers all summer long. It does best with a structure to climb on. Plants can be cut back to the ground after the first fall frost. It puts out new growth each spring in zones 6-10.

Comment: The plant arrived healthy and bloomed soon after. I tried growing Maypop from seed and failed so I’m glad to have it. I’ve transferred to a larger pot while I think about the best spot for ground planting. It is growing and about to bloom again.
"Maypops are doing great!"
