    Aristolochia baetica is very similar to Aristochia sempiverens which occurs in parts of Italy, North Africa and parts of the eastern Mediterranean region. Aristolochia baetica has darker flowers which are more purple in colour, and the leaves of the plant are a blue-green colour. The Giant Dutchman's Pipe Vine Plant (Aristolochia gigantea) is one of the most outrageous flowers in the world, this species from Brazil is huge--over ten inches in length. Each flower displays an intricate pattern of white and mottled reddish brown. The mouth is ringed in black and has a center of golden yellow/5(35).

    Widely naturalised in the tropical regions of the world (e.g. Zimbabwe, South Africa, Hawaii, French Polynesia, New Caledonia, Fiji, the Cook Islands and south-eastern USA). Habitat Primarily a weed of rainforests, closed forests, urban bushland, disturbed sites, roadsides, waste areas, waterways and forest margins in tropical and sub-tropical. This qualification is extremely important because some species of Aristolochia, such as elegans and gigantea and many others are not safe to raise caterpillars. The female will oviposit on these, the eggs will hatch, and the cats may even get to their second or third instar, but they die way before they are mature enough to ific name: Aristolochia macrophylla.

    On some of our VERY dry years it has a hard time but so does everything.. Like I said, I do not irrigate and my land is onto of a pile of limestone in Central Texas. It is a porous soil. It has survived through 11" annual rain. It grows under live oaks on Bracket soils and leaf litter amended with some compost and Decomposed granite. Positive. Seed Availability. Seeds are not available for the Dutchman's Pipe. Please visit our seed store to view current selections. Seeds were last available in August Description. Fairly fast growing vine, usually to ft, but it can also spread out in all directions.
