White-Veined Dutchman’s Pipe

Aristolochia fimbriata

POW - White Veined Dutchmans Pipe

White-Veined Dutchman’s pipe, unlike the other Dutchman’s pipe, is more of a ground cover. Rather than forming a large vine that grows up and around everywhere, it only gets about two feet long with beautiful little yellow brown flowers, about an inch long. They’re kind of intricate. You need to view them up close to appreciate them.

The real ornamental features are the leaves, which are round with bright silver veins. This plant is a larval food source for the pipevine swallowtail, another great reason to grow this vine.

Use it as a groundcover in semi-shade that receives partial bright sun. It’s also great in a hanging basket.
