Aristolochia gigantea
June 18. 2004
I bought a small Aristolochia gigantea  from Logees this Spring along with some more small Passionflowers and other little beauties.
To my surprise this plant produced a flower within the first month in our greenhouse. And here is the plant now outside in  its Summer place,  growing and flowering happily.
See below - a close up of the awesome flower, measuring ca. 8 X 6 inches
The yellow entrance is about the size of a quarter.
