    Hi there,

    i have brought this plant inside for the winter. the leaves are falling off. Yikes-first of these plants for me. Can you advise me on the best way to care for this plant inside and when should i move it back outside? I live in maple ridge, bc.

    thanks for your help!

    The volunteers looking after HortLine had the following response:

    Passiflora caerulea is a fast-growing vine that will survive outside in zones 5-9 (including Maple Ridge). However, in colder zones, it may lose all of its leaves and die back in winter - so this is normal.
