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.
