Pruning Passiflora Incarnata

Anonymous added on February 23, 2011 | Answered

I live in south central Texas and my passion vine has been beaten up by the unusal frigid, consecutive, below-freezing days. It has been growing up our covered pergola porch for about two years, but now ALL of the vines have dropped leaves and look dead. Do I take all the vines off the roof and prune it back? If so, how much and when should I do this?

I would wait until spring to cut back the plant. It will help protect the new growth, just in case another freeze occurs. But, it will need to be pruned in the spring. These articles will help you:
