Unusual small species with pale green leaves veined in silver on low spreading plants. The flowers are frankly bizarre, white-green with brown and pale yellow "faces". Light shade, shelter.

Unlike other species Aristolochia fimbriata is a scrambling herbaceous perennial rather than a vigorous climber.  Although it is often recommended as a tender plant requiring frost free winters we have found it to be hardy here so far (-7C at least).  It is deciduous though.

From south America.
