Aristolochia durior
Dutchman's Pipe

Dutchman's Pipe, Aristolochia durior, is an extremely vigorous vine that is often grown because its large, heart-shaped leaves make an excellent screen. It is used for covering buildings and as a screen for porches. The flowers of this species are shaped like a Meerschaum pipe but are not particularly ornamental. This deciduous, perennial plant requires a trellis or arbor to encourage upright growth. The small flowers are a favorite food for pipe vine swallowtail butterfly larvae and will attract birds.

The Adam's Needle, 'Yucca filamentosa 'Bright Edge' is a clumping perennial with tufts of dark green leaves edged in golden yellow. Creamy, bell-shaped, white flowers hover over the foliage. The red coloration on the long blades highlight the flowering crown. Plant height 18" and a spread of 20" It should be planted in full sun and in a well-drained area; looks great in a subject garden or in containers and is also a butterfly attractor.


Butterfly Bush - Buddleia 'Bicolor'
Does this Buddleia knock your socks off or what? 'Bicolor' is the first ever to offer two completely different colors on the same bloomstalk- rich butterscotch yellow and frosty raspberry lavender. Selected from more than 2,000 seedlings, 'Bicolor' was first grown at Dr. Michael Dirr's test gardens at the University of Georgia.

6 feet tall and 5 feet wide, 'Bicolor' grows well in a sunny, well-drained spot. It has good drought tolerance and tolerance to extreme heat and humidity. (For best bloom color, keep the plant very well watered during growth and flowering). Zones 5-9.
