Just know that they are invasive. I'm in Northern CA they go dormant in the in winter and re-appear in the spring.
I'm not sure if you mean passion flower, the vine, which are in the Passiflora species, or "Purple passion" plant, also known as "Purple Velvet," which is Gynura aurantiaca. If the latter, there are cultural tips here:
It is the vine. Currently in a pot on my porch, so it can be moved inside during the winter months.
I'm not sure which particular Passiflora you have, Pat, but in general they are great plants for attracting butterflies. They want a mostly sunny spot, but will take some shade. Put a loose layer of mulch over the roots to offer them some protection. Depending on where you are in Georgia, you could probably plant it in the ground. It would die back to the ground in winter, but should come back in spring. They're fast growers.
Thank you very much, I will try that.
