This is one of the first blooms of the spring. It is evergreen and ready as soon as the temps warm up. It spreads, but not too agressively.

Aristolochia gigantea though a lovely fast growing plant is NOT a plant I want to have in my garden. I have found documentation to substantiate my dealings with using the plant. I kept seeing my Pipevine Swallowtail butterfly larva hatch, then die when feeding on the plant; I found out later was indeed toxic to them.
