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.
Clumps of strong stems topped with masses of white Campions with frilly edges in spring. Good seed heads. Part shade, average soil. 80cm.
