Product Description

Dutchman’s Pipe is a very vigorous growing vine. It will create a thick green screen in a short period of time, so it’s great for covering a fence, wall or trellis. It has large, heart-shaped leaves and very interesting flowers that are shaped like a small pipe. You may have to look hard to find the flowers--they are only a few inches long and are a yellow-green to brown color. This vine plays an important role in the life of native Pipevine Swallowtail butterflies. The flowers provide nectar for the butterflies, and the leaves are an important food source for the caterpillars of this butterfly. The vigorous growth of this vine makes it easy to share the leaves with these beautiful insects. Plant in moist, well-drained soil. Winter hardy to Zone 4. Commonly called Dutchman's pipe because the unusual, 2" long, yellowish-green flowers (each flaring at the calyx mouth to form 3 brownish-purple lobes) superficially resemble Dutch smoking pipes. Vines need moist, well drained soil with an exposure of one half day to a full day of sun. The plant should be mulched and kept moist, especially during the first growing season. Fertilize every four weeks during the growing season with a well balanced liquid fertilizer. Prepare a hole at least 1 foot deep and mix 50% peat moss or well rotted manure.
