Aristolochia Elegans Calico Vine
Hardy to 30 F., Aristolchia Elegans is a vigorous, fast growing vine, that can reach heights of 10-15 feet. Very tolerant of arid conditions, heat and high humidity, this lovely vine will also bloom in sun and light shade and can even be grown indoors as it does well in low light conditions. During summer, it produces a number of 3 inch wide blooms that have a burgundy-brown pattern over a soft white background giving this vine the common name of Calico Flower. These unusual, beautiful blooms are displayed against bright green heart shaped leaves that form a dense mass of foliage. Will also grow well in containers. An added bonus to growing this vine is that it is an important larval food source for several species of butterflies. Growing instructions included. Pkt. 10
