White flowered form of the hardy blue passion flower. Delicately scented. Deeply divided, rich green leaves. May produce egg-shaped, yellow-orange fruits, particularly following hot summers.

Well drained, fertile soil in sun or part shade. Reasonably hardy and usually successful in a mild or sheltered position.
If required, prune lightly in autumn. In spring old shoots can be cut back by about one third.
