Provide your Coffee Trees with a high quality, acidic, moderately rich, well-draining potting soil that is mainly composed of well-decomposed, aged, pinebark mulch and not peat moss based soil which often stays too wet. See our guide to growing Coffee Trees at the link below or find more in depth info on Coffee Trees from Purdue University by clicking the "More info..." link below.

Incense Passionflower, Passionvine
The deep purple 3-4", richly fragrant exotic looking flowers are produced throughout the growing season on this vigorous Passionvine with medium green foliage. Incense is considered to be one of the hardiest passionvines for US gardens along with the native Maypop Passionvine, Passiflora incarnata, one of its parents, and the US native Yellow Passionvine, Passiflora lutea. In our experience Incense rarely produces fruit on its own and some sources suggest that hand pollination is required. Like the native Maypop Passionflower, Incense readily spreads by rhizomes. A caterpillar host for the Gulf Fritillary, Zebra Longwing, and other Heliconian butterflies Item # 464. Price: US$12.99
