SCOPOLETIN

 

Prior to 1978, passionflower was approved
as an over-the-counter natural sedative in the U.S.

Compounds in the plant stimulate an increase in
the production of gamma-amino butyric acid,
or GABA, in the brain, which produces a mild
sedative effect.

PLANT REQUIREMENTS:

SUN: PASSION FLOWERS NEED AT LEAST 4 FULL HOURS OF SUNLIGHT A DAY; MORE IN COOLER CLIMATES AND SOME PARTIAL SHADE IN THE HOTTEST AREAS.

PLANTING: ADDING COMPOST TO THE PLANTING HOLE WILL HELP RETAIN MOISTURE. SOME TYPE OF SUPPORT IS NEEDED FOR THE VINES TO GROW ON. IT CAN BE A TRELLIS, A STRUCTURE OR EVEN ANOTHER PLANT.

MOST VARIETIES OF PASSION FLOWER CAN BE PURCHASED AS PLANTS. THEY CAN ALSO BE PROPAGATED FROM EITHER SEED, SOFTWOOD CUTTINGS, LAYERING OR RHIZOMES.
