Aristolochia leuconeura (Pipe Flower) is a vine or creeper native to Costa Rica and grows in USDA Zone 9-11. It has unusual colored flowers and ornamental foliage that attracts butterflies and hummingbirds, making it a great choice for the garden.

This plant requires full sun to semi-shade and regular watering. It prefers soil that is kept moist, but not soggy. The leaves are 5-6 inches wide and leathery, almost like aroid leaves. The small flowers are an unusual shape too.

Grown in a pot, Aristolochia leuconeura can be moved indoors or protected in cold weather if it is expected to drop below 30s F for a short period of time. It is best to cover the pot if the temperature drops too low so the roots will not be damaged. If growing in the ground, mulching can help the plant survive cold weather.

Aristolochia leuconeura is a great way to add unusual color and texture to your garden.
