Aristolochia durior (macrophylla) and Aristolochia tomentosa
The Dutchman's Pipe is a twining climber much appreciated for its lush, large and roof tile-like arranged leaves. The plant is also known to “transform” down pipes and lightning conductors! Apart from regular watering, it requires little maintenance, and pruning is almost unnecessary. Available from nurseries is predominantly A. macrophylla with the non-hairy shoots, but frequently other species are sold under this name.
