Aristolochia tomentosa

13th September 2009

A vigorous species from the eastern states of the USA. Hardy and deciduous in the UK, I am hoping for great things from this one next year. This shows it shortly after I obtained it, reduced at my local garden centre, because nobody had wanted it all year.

I have it planted in the Agave house (don't ask me why, it just seemed like a good idea at the time) and I have been enjoying the vigorous growth and looking forward to flowers. Then somebody kindly informed me that it didn't flower until it has reached about 30ft.
That is going to be a challenge.
