Product Details

Product Details

A large genus of some 300 species, only one of which holds real merit for temperate gardens. A. macrophylla (A. durior) is a vigorous deciduous vine grown for its large (9″) heart-shaped leaves. Once established it soon smothers walls, fences and even entire buildings. Trained up a trellis or an arbor, it can also provide shade, or privacy from neighbors who are too close for comfort. The 1½″ brownish purple flowers look like small saxophones or, yes, Dutchmen's pipes. They open without much fanfare in June.

This eastern United States native climbs happily in full sun or partial shade (required in the South) and evenly moist soil. We offer sturdy, 24–30″ bareroot plants, better than the normal grade, and they will catch hold quickly.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Macrophylla versus tomentosa

The unknown species mentioned above sounds like A. tomentosa which has suckers that pop up anywhere there is moisture. Highly invasive. A. macrophyla does not do this. Too many vendors don't know the difference. The vine in the picture here is definitely macrophyla. It is not invasive as it will only send shoots from the crown. No suckers. This confusion of species is a prime example of why latin names should be used instead of common names like dutchman's pipe.

Uncertain species

15 years ago I ordered a Aristolachia from WFF. It has grown magnificantly covering a 6' high chain link fence in good fashion. About 6 years ago I ordered two more for the same fence. These have smaller leaves and they produce underground runners many feet out from the mother plant. I consider that invasive. I'm considering digging the newer two up because it has become a battle in my perennial garden to keep it at bay. The leaves have never attained the size of my original plant either. I think the supplier sold WFF some weird species.

So far so good

This was my first experience with bare root, but it's gone very well so far. Immediately after delivery I soaked it in a bucket of water for a couple hours then planted it. Within a week I had new growth starting and now after a month it's climbed about two feet up the pergola.

Very Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMG!!!!!! this vine arrived dormant (asleep without any leaves)and had nice big thick roots. I planted it in my full shade garden a week ago and it has sprouted and grown 10 inchs already. I read on the internet the first year you plant a pipevine it sleeps, next year it creeps, on the third year it leaps. This vine looks to be leaping. Searusly,I have had bad luck trying to start any pipevine from seed (except for Aristolochia Fimbriata) This is the best place to buy you a nice and mature pipevine. 2 YEAR HEAD START!!!!!!!!!

pipevine swallowtail butterflies

This vine draws pipevine swallowtails, which lay their egs on it. The larvae are really amazing looking and soon you have made it possible for an explosion of butterflies in the neighborhood! Really amazing! The only problem is that the enthusiastic appetites of the larvae eventually killed the plant.

Grow Dutchman's Pipe in full sun or partial shade in the North, partial shade or shade in the South and evenly moist, well-drained soil. Slow to become established, but then grows very vigorously. Prune as needed in late winter. Climbs by means of stems that twine from left to right.
