Description:

Aristolochia leuconeura;This species is native to humid forested areas in Costa Rica, Panama, Columbia and Peru. Vines of this particular species (as well as most Aristolochia species native to the U.S.) are a host for pipevine swallowtail butterfly larvae. Pipevine swallowtails lay their eggs on the foliage of this vine, the eggs hatch, and the tiny larvae crawl around the plants, voraciously eating the leaves as they gain size. Small pipe-shaped red flowers bloom singly from the leaf axils in the lower part of the old stems in June-July.
