Dutchman's Pipe (aristolochia macrophylla)
This vine is an old-fashioned favorite grown for its large heart-shaped, glossy green leaves which can quickly cover porches and arbors. The name comes from the flowers resemblance to Dutch smoking pipes. This is the larval host plant for the blue and black pipevine swallowtail butterfly. This fast growing vine will cover 15' by 20' in one season. Great in either full sun or heavy shade. Responds well to generous feeding and watering.
