I dunno. These flowers don't do too much for me. No offense Azalea... but gosh!! they're obscene looking! I can imagine they're quite a conversation plant.

No I didn't grow it from seed, My DIL gave me the plant. It is sooo hard to root, I have tried many times unsucessfully to root cuttings. It only had one seed pod, but I didn't discover it til it had frozen in my gh when the heater went out, so I don't think it is viable.

Yes, Poppy, the unopened bud does look a little "odd"! I have one coming on it now, it takes about 3 weeks for the buds to open, then the flower only lasts a couple of days. More keep coming on tho throught summer. No fragrance either.

Holy Cow Azalea, that is really something. I have never seen pics of this plant other than in seed catalogues. You have something to be proud of. It looks like you have that in a pot, right? What zone are you in? Great pic.

Yes. I have it in a 5 gal pot, I put it ouside in the shade in summer, and bring it in in winter - I just set it out a few days ago, it has a large bud coming on it now. I am in zone 7b, just south of Atlanta.

I have one of these exact same plants, but it's Aristolochia gigantea. Are you sure of the species "trilobata"? There are also more than two types of Dutchman's Pipe. I know of at least four or five: littoralis, elegans, gigantea, grandiflora, but there are many more. Grandiflora has flowers two feet long. This is one of the bad-smelling varieties, as well. Mine has no odor, which makes it a good yard citizen.

I just found my first-ever seed pod on it this morning and am thrilled!

It is possible to grow this from cuttings. Here is my mother plant , taken today. And following that is a cutting that I rooted over a month ago.

We just purchased a Dutchman from Butterfly Gardens in Coconut Creek, Fl. We are using it as a "host" plant to attract Swallowtail butterflies to our Garden.

Same comment as Carena...I had no idea these were so big! I've seen photos of them, but adding measurement really gives a full idea of hte plant.

Thanks also to everyone for the additional pics.
