The flowers, spanning 7-10 cm in width, present a striking composition with vibrant red, gracefully curved petals. What truly distinguishes them is the fringed corona, marked with alternating bands of purple and white, creating a visually captivating striped pattern.

The scent is not merely a subtle note but rather very intense, contributing to the overall sensory allure of this extraordinary Passiflora variety.
