Dutchman’s Pipe Vine
Dutchman’s Pipe’s glossy tropical-looking mien brings cool, deep shade to your corner of the world, as well as the wild woodlands and streams of the eastern U.S. The delightful, densely cloaked screen generated by this deciduous climber’s flush of large heart-shaped foliage will also dampen street noise and rapidly shield you from the neighbors. With exceptional vigor, old- fashioned appeal, plus a pest and pollution-proof mettle, overlapping dark green leaves shyly reveal intriguing, 2 in. long mahogany and cream-colored tubular blooms, which flare into 3 lobes and evoke a Dutchman’s pipe. A favored food source for the Pipevine Swallowtail butterfly, A. durior appreciates hefty support, adequate space, a late winter cutback and rich, well-drained moist soil, while effortlessly clambering over sun porches, verandas, pillars, posts or fences.
