My A trilobata arrived on time and gloriously packed! I've had so many bad experiences with shipped plants for various suppliers, but this was a great experience. All shipped with many (10+) healthy leaves - packed in corrugated cardboard and taped in place - no damage. Will certainly order again in the future.
This pipevine supports Pipevine Swallowtail caterpillars (9/16/2019)
The vines arrived nicely packaged and full of nice thick leaves. The caterpillars transitioned to this plant when I ran out of Aristolochia Fimbriata. The caterpillars take longer to get through a leaf because these leaves are thick when mature. The plant quickly resprouted new tender leaves. The butterflies that eclosed from the batch that ate A trilobata are back laying eggs on these plants. Atrilobata feeds caterpillars better and lasts longer than A fimbriata.
This and the white-veined pipestem (also purchased here) are the only exotic pipevines I grow due to the others being toxic traps to the Pipevine swallowtail. I find the foliage of both more interesting too. A. trilobata leaves look somewhat more glossy and the texture is a good foil to many plants.
