Passiflora Amethyst / Lavendar Lady Flowers are loosing colour, fading to white

Post by cookymunster on Sat Nov 12, 2011 2:33 pm

Hi all

Please can you tell me how to get the purple colour back into my Passion Flowers.

It's a Passiflora Amethyst / Lavendar Lady. The flowers are loosing the purple colour and are fading to almost white. Is it the cold or as it's coming up to winter is it the fading sun.

Thanks

I HAVE the same problem as you.
At home, he fel: 14 ° C at night....... 25 ° C during the day;
What I think it Faur see:
a) - the virus.
b) - Lack of potassium.
c) - The Passion Is that ell EST fatigué.Il rest itself.
Perhaps, problem another look.

Hi

I have found new information about the fading purple colour in the flowers.

Look at this, last paragraph.

Hello,

This is caused by the change in light and temps. The plants are
Going dorment and should also be showing other examples of this as well. Colour fade is one of the first signs, along with small or unformed ovaries, stigmas, or anthers. Most passiflora make these changes befor dormency and this should be seen as perfectly normal. Enjoy even these faded flowers as soon they will stop coming till next spring for you.
