Aristolochia elegans

Half-hardy Perennial

A show stopping half hardy climber for the summer garden or conservatory. The blooms of the Dutchman's Pipe are highly sought after and we are pleased to have sourced this stunning Brazilian vine for all you would-be plant hunters. The exotic 7.5cm (3") flowers take on a unique rich purple-brown hue overlaid with a creamy white patina and exude a soft fragrance. The soft lush foliage is over-sized and heart-shaped - everything about this plant is spectacular. Aristolochia plants will enjoy a warm conservatory over winter, but as you can see, a little fuss is well worth the effort! Height: up to 8m (26'). Spread: 100cm (3').

Grow Aristolochia in a sheltered position in sun or semi shade. Dutchmans Pipe prefers a fertile, well drained soil. Support the stems on trellis, wires, or a sturdy obelisk. Dutchmans Pipe plants require a minimum temperature of 7C (45F) during the winter months. In cold areas grow it in a conservatory or greenhouse, or planted in patio containers that can be kept in a frost free position over winter. Use a loam based compost such as John Innes No.2.
Feed and water regularly while plants are in active growth. Container grown plants should be moved into a heated greenhouse or conservatory for the winter with a minimum temperature of 7C (45F). In winter or late spring, lightly trim the sideshoots of Dutchmans Pipe plants to keep it tidy and confine the stems to the available space.
