    Looks Like a Crazy Nep Pitcher

    Check this thing out, it looks like it could be a Nep, but it's not
    It's a type of Aristolochia / Pipe Vine / Dutchman's Pipevine
    Sorry, lost the exact name / Tying to find it

    Got two small cuttings last year
    Got them rooted just before winter / When they go doormat
    Wasn't sure if they were going to make it or not, but they came back nicely

    First flowers are just starting to form & open
    They Look Like Crazy Nep Pitchers IMO

    All of the above names apply. There's a variety here in CA as a native wildflower.

    A tropical greenhouse near here has an enormous one. It's growing a couple stories up and into the rafters, and the flowers are enormous. Yeah, they do look like huge neps. From some angles they even look like big stomachs or even lungs. Very unusual.

    There are many different plants in this family. We have one that I planted several years ago that grows up on the pergola over our deck as a foodplant for the Pipevine Swallowtail butterfly. It has very small flowers that are somewhat difficult to see. Very different from the beast of a flower that you posted - amazing.
    All the best,

    That was the first one that's flowered

    Seen pics but never grew any

    Just totally looks like some kind of tripped out Nep pitcher

    K I called that greenhouse today, they have a Aristolochia Gigantea brasiliensis. I remember it has a thick wooden stem. Here's a pic I found on google http://www.pepinierefleursdusud.com/...asiliensis.jpg of another one . As the flower ages it rumples what looks like a giant inflated stomach. Fascinating plant!
