Aristolochia

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

(Syn.: Dioscorea discolor), Variegated Monkey Ball Vine, Ornamental Yam

NEW! - This is a dramatic tropical vine from Ecuador and Brazil that has brilliantly colored leaves. The large deep green heart shaped leaves are veined with silver and randomly mottled with maroon and black with the undersides a rich pinkish purple. As the season progresses the leaves increase in size. This vigorous but manageable vine grows in a counterclockwise direction to a height of 8 to 12 feet from underground tubers (same genus as edible yams) and has small drooping clusters of tiny white, aromatic flowers. Grow in sun or part shade in rich, well-drained soil with plenty of moisture. If temperatures drop to the mid 30's, it will go dormant. It is winter hardy in USDA Zones 8b - 11, where the tubers may be left in the ground, but they need to be kept dry to prevent rotting. In colder climates lift tubers in the fall to overwinter in a cool frost-free location. Use on trellises, porches, and pergolas or as a container plant in the greenhouse. It may also be grown as a houseplant in a bright sunny indoor location. Dioscoreaceae
