The Q&A Archives: Locating Dutchman's Pipe

Question: Where can we find and order the fast growing vine Dutchman's Pipe? (Aristolochia duriour, or Aristolochia macrophylla) We read about it in a magazine and it sounds like it is exactly what we need for our new home and new fence.

Answer: Dutchman's Pipe is a deciduous vine that will cover 15-20 in one season when grown from seed. It has large (6-14-inch long) kidney-shaped, deep green glossy leaves, and blooms in early summer. The plant thrives in full sun or heavy shade, and can be cut down to the ground in the winter to encourage new spring growth. Seeds are available through Cyberseeds, P. O. Box 171102, San Antonio, TX 78217-1102.
