At Watson's the other day, a large deep purple flower caught my eye from across the nursery.
The hand written tag just said Aristolochia - Dutchman's Pipe.
Is this but interesting or what?
An image search yielded a lot of interesting-looking plants sharing this name. Take a look here if you're interested.
Hardy only to zone 10, this one isn't destined for my garden.
The $68.00 price tag for the large specimens means that one's not going to be in my greenhouse either.
However, I found quite a few much more economical sources online.
Seed us quite inexpensive so if I remember, I'll give it a try next summer.
Have you grown this plant? What was your experience?
