California Pipe Vine
Slow to establish. Pipe vine swallowtail butterfly larva feeds solely on aristolochia.
Pipe-shaped flowers appear somewhat inconspicuously in late winter on this unique, drought-tolerant, shade-loving vine. Growth to 12 feet curls through shrubs, trees, and fences. Adaptable to most soils, pipevine spreads by underground rhizomes and can become aggressive. Pruning is optional.
