There are variety's that like cooler temperatures like the sanguinea's and the vulcanola's, however I don't know of any that can take a hard freeze. In my zone I could cut them just above the ground and seal the wound. The brug. would come back from the roots the following year. I never do that because then I have to wait for all that new growth to get mature enough to produce blooms again. By digging and potting the plant it can either be over wintered in a cool garage or put in a greenhouse. I don't heat my greenhouse and we get down around 30 in the winter, sometimes cooler. The only time I heat is if we get below 30 degree's. In doing this, I get very early Spring blooms and if we stay mild into Fall, I will get late Fall blooms in the greenhouse to pollinate.

I am not saying you are wrong, I just haven't heard of a brug. that can stay in the ground during the winter in area's that have frost and freezes, but I am not by any way all knowlegable about these plants.

I am sorry, I always seem to have brugs. on my mind. I have grown a couple varity's that survived the frosts . One was P. coral sea's, in fact that thing was so vigorous it grew up into my neighbors cherry tree's and I had to take it out. I couldn't keep it out of other things. I think the other was one of the real hardy one's but I can't think of the name off the top of my head. I have also grown P. Lavender Lady. I had mine for two years and when we got down to 27 I lost it. It probably would have been fine if I had put a cloche over it.

I am a zone 5 here and I would love to try one of the real hardy ones..I have a section of the yard that gets covered in about 3 feet of oak leaves and I wonder if that would provide enough protection against our hard winters?

I think Passiflora incarnata and Blue passionflower are two of the hardiest. I would think with alot of mulch you could grown those in zone 5.

Just 'googled' hardy passion vines.

http://www.texasgardener.com/pastiss...0/passion.html They state p. incarnata can go to 18 degrees. That is incredible.

This may help you RR. Let us know how you fare out.

Patricia, had to look up coral seas; very nice! Hadn't heard of that one til now.

Hey flowerdazed my friend, thank you so much

Thank you both I will let you know how I do with them. I will try to get some planted in the spring to give them a nice time of growth and establishment before I test them with our winter here.

Hi Beth!
Awwwwh, thanks! I'm glad you are enjoying the pictures.

Hi zuzu,
Thanks for the very nice compliment. I really strive to capture the beauty in the plants I grow, and sometimes it is very hard, but, I keep plugging along til I get 'the one'.
