Passiflora Silly Cow® en Duuk®
The Passiflora has long been one of the big favourites. Unfortunately, most of these are not very winter hardy. The Passiflora Duuk is the most winter hardy Passiflora we have come across so far. The Silly Cow is also a special variety. This Passionflower has the largest flower that we have ever seen; enough reason for us to add these two Passifloras to our ‘Our Choice’ assortment.

His varieties are the end result of more than fifty years of dedicated plant researching, breeding and crossing. Characteristic of Raymond Evison varieties are their prolonged flowering periods, sometimes as many as two months longer than regular varieties, but also their lovely fresh and compact growth. These varieties are easy to maintain and also grow well in pots. In short, they meet all of our expectations. Therefore we did not need to hesitate long before adding the Evison Clematis to our ‘Our Choice’ range.
