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').
