Aristolochia






ARISTOLOCHIA SIPHO.--Dutchman's Pipe. North America, 1763. A

large-growing, deciduous climbing shrub, remarkable for its ample

foliage, and curiously formed yellow and purple streaked flowers. A

native of North America, it is perfectly hardy in this country, and

makes an excellent wall plant where plenty of space can be afforded

for the rambling branches. What a pity it is that so ornamental a

climber, whose big, dark-green leaves overlap each other as if

intended for keeping a house cool in warm weather, is not more

generally planted. It does well and grows fast in almost any soil.
