California Pipevine

Aristolochia californica

California Pipevine Butterfly
Battus philenor


With lovely heart-shaped leaves and unique pipe-shaped flowers this deciduous vine thrives in the arden with little attention. Preferring some shade, it tolerates many types of soil. Its delicate pipe-shaped flowers bloom in May and June. The beautiful leaves provide food for the larvae of the beautiful blue and black California Pipevine butterflies.
