Aristolochia fimbriata

Life: Perennial

Size: 4-10'

Light: Filtered Sun to Bright Shade

Water: Moderate, Well-Drained

Soil: Any

A tough little evergreen vine or ground cover, it has unusual brown, green, and yellow flowers hidden among the leaves from late spring to early fall. The leaves themselves are shaped like miniature waterlily pads and are beautifully patterned with pale green on emerald. It is also an excellent host for caterpillars, in particular to the Pipevine Swallowtai, who love the plant so much they often eat it back to the ground. Do not worry, though; it is hardy and will bounce right back with more leaves and often multiple stems as well.
