Notes:

I came across this beauty while I was walking my friend’s pup in Santa Monica, CA this morning. The purple flower was approximately 12″ in length and the white pods in center were about 1-1/2 inches in length. I’m hoping someone can identify what looks like a tropical plant to me : )

    That is spectacular! Compare to Aristolochia gigantea Aka Brazilian Dutchman’s Pipe Finding seeds on that vine shouldn’t be difficult, and pipevine comes up easily from fresh seed. Next time check for caterpillars n butterflies! Hmmm… Maybe you shouldn’t grow this tropical pipevine… http://monarchbutterflygarden.net/aristolochia-gigantea-kills-pipevine-swallowtails/
