Aristolochia californica - BSWJ13511

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
Too many favourites in this genus, this being just one of them, along with fond memories of our time with Sean Hogan in Oregon during the summer of 2013 and autumn 2014. Near Portland is where we collected the seed of this vigorous, yet suitably restrained twining climber to 3.5m, with heart shaped fealty leaves to about 10cm long. The foliage only appearing during the latter period of the flowering, in the form of tubby saxophones with large flared tawny-pink lips. Best sited to allow sunlight to backlight the plants in spring when the bare stems are crowded with translucent flowers, according to Dan Hinkley. Best grown in a leafy soil with good drainage in sun or light shade.
