Dutchman’s pipe vine is a native, woody, deciduous, fast growing, twining vine that’s typically found growing along moist woodlands and stream. Unusual, curved-trumpet-shaped, yellowish-green flowers resembling Dutch smoking pipes. Flowers are often hidden behind large, densely-overlapping, heart-shaped, green leaves. Flowers give way to pendant, grayish-brown seed capsules. This vine can quickly cover an arbor, trellis, sun porch, veranda, post or fence.
