Passion Flowers are among the most beautiful flowers on earth.

Their delicate petals surround a center that resembles a bunch of little baskets.

They look like something out of a fairytale.

Passion vines and can be trained to climb trellises or left to go their own way. The fact that they are a larger vine, combined with the fact that they bloom profusely throughout the summer, dictates that they be put in a large pot.

Passion flowers are perennials - they will come back each year, but may need to have dead leaves and ‘stems' pruned for better growth.

Purple Fountain Grass is just one of many ornamental grasses that can be used in container gardening. It is an excellent centerpiece; adding height to the passion flower without taking away from its beauty.

Both plants do prefer moist soil that drains well and will do fine in sun or shade.
