We received this unusual climber from the Elizabeth C. Miller Botanical Garden in Seattle, WA, They do not use it as a climber but instead let it spill attractively down the side of a large container. The small, inch-long, deltoid leaves are dark green. During the summer, tiny saxophone-shaped flowers with yellow interiors stand out amidst the rich foliage. Over time Aristolochia sempervirens can grow modestly tall. Its evergreen leaves create a year-round screen in sheltered areas.

July through August.  15 ft.
