Purple passionflower is a gorgeous native vine that is a host plant for number of butterflies. It spreads by root suckers, and it can pop up in unexpected places in the garden, but it can be controlled by removing the undesirable growth. 
Grow it in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. Will tolerate some shade, but blooms better in full sun.  Edible, egg-shaped fruit appears in July, matures to a yellow color and then falls to the ground. May be used on trellises, arbors, walls or fences.
