Aristolochia gigantea, Brazilian Dutchman’s Pipe, Giant Pelican Flower, is an ornamental plant native to Brazil.
Aggressive Vine. The Aristolochia gigantea will inspire a sense of marvel to anyone who gazes upon it. This truly spectacular blossom produces a pouch that is almost 2 feet long and more than a foot across. Ivory veins network across a burgundy velvet background as the flower unfurls.
The flowers of most Aristolochia species looks like rotting meat and emit an odor to attract flies which act as pollinator. The Aristolochia gigantea is the host plant for the Common Rose butterfly.
