SnowPop™ Maypop Passionflower
Selected at Northwoods Nursery, SnowPop™ Maypop Passionflower features large, very attractive, snow white blooms. Fragrant and prolific, these striking flowers add to the beauty of this hardy, perennial vine.
Maypop fruits are greenish yellow with the delicious and sprightly taste of tropical Passionfruit pulp around the seeds. Maypop freezes to the ground in late fall and comes back in late spring, usually in early May (hence the name Maypop), so don’t be surprised that they’re coming up late.
