Birthwort, Aristolochiaceae. From this fascinating genus come many of the most unusual flowers in the world, most of them difficult to describe to the uninitiated. From the side, the flowers often look like birds or dutchman's pipes. Head on, many look like large maroon or green pouches. For our catalog, we've chosen what we think are some of the best of the genus. For all the intricacies of their flowers, aristolochias have no flower petals, just one fancy calyx.

Cuitelo, Cipo Tapia, Crista-De-Galo (Rooster's Crest)
(Sometimes miss-identified as a Mucuna species)

Spectacular vine from Brazil with long pendulous chains of fiery orange-red flowers. It can be brought to bloom after a couple of seasons in a large container, but this heavy vine needs a large support. It's best outdoors or in a conservatory or greenhouse where enough space can be given. An arbor is ideal so that the brilliant flowering racemes can hang down from the ceiling. Blooms in fall and winter. Prune heavily in spring after flowering. Give full or partial sun with adequate moisture and fertilizer.

It hails from the Cerrados parts of Minas Gerais and Sao Paulo states of Brazil at an elevation of 1,500 to 3,000 feet. Therefore, it can tolerate some drought and frost. It survived 4 nights that dropped briefly to 25F at the nursery without any damage. However, its hardiness range is not yet known, probably USDA zones 9b - 11. Fabaceae, subfamily Faboideae
