If you sow enough P. caerulea seed the odd pale blue or even white flower will come up. The Lucombe, Pince & Co Nursery, Exeter UK, raised Passiflora ‘Constance Eliott’ in 1884. Read its fascinating history “The ghost of Constance Eliott’ in the Passiflora Online Journal Issue 5 p. 20. Note that there are now a number of similar looking white Passiflora hybrids and it can be difficult to tell them apart. The most distinct one perhaps is my polpyploid hybrid, Passiflora ‘Snow Queen’, which is much larger.
