The Woolly Dutchman’s Pipe is a woody vine that is native to the eastern United States. It has large, heart-shaped leaves and curious, pipe-shaped flowers. The underside of the leaves and the stems have white hairs. It is similar to the Dutchman’s pipe, Aristolochia macrophylla but it is more tolerant of heat and sandy soils. Occurs in alluvial soils along rivers and streams where it climbs up into the trees that grow on the stream and river banks. It grows farther south and it grows in full sun to light shade. Host of the pipevine swallowtail butterfly. It is a wonderful and unusual plant to grow on a trellis or in a wildflower or butterfly garden. Native to the southeastern and south-central United States from North Carolina to Florida and west to Texas and Oklahoma. Hardy in zones 4-8.

 

Growing Instructions for the Woolly Dutchman’s Pipe

 

The seeds have a period of dormancy. They can be planted outdoors in the fall or winter for spring germination or they can be cold stratified to simulate winter conditions and to break their dormancy at any time of the year. 1. Soak the seeds in warm water for 48 hours. 2. Put seeds in a ziplock bag. 3. Put the bag in the refrigerator and leave it there for 3 months. 4. The seeds like rich, moist soil. Sow the seeds in containers with a good quality potting soil or compost. 5. Sow the seeds on the surface of the soil and cover them with a thin layer of soil. 6. Water the soil so that it is moist but not wet. Keep the soil moist and do not let it dry out. The seeds will germinate in 2-3 weeks. 7. When the seedlings are a few inches tall, they can be transplanted.
