    We specified clear red western cedar for the pergola, left unfinished. Eventually it will weather to a silver-grey color.

    We wanted to make sure the wires were invisible so we had the fabricator of the pergola drill a hole through the center of each cross beam and down through the center of the posts. We hid the junction box for each light below a bluestone paver. Although it required a little extra coordination, it resulted in a simple, clean look.

Woolly Dutchman’s Pipe (Aristolochia tomentosa)Native from East Texas to the East Coast and north to Illinois and IndianaWoolly Dutchman’s pipe is the larval host plant for the pipevine swallowtail butterfly and makes a great addition to a butterfly garden. It requires moist soil and is best planted where the roots will be shaded and the vine can grow up toward sunlight. It twines to a height of 10 to 15 feet. The unique flowers in early summer are small compared to the large heart-shaped leaves, which make a lush cover for a pergola.
