Low desert pipevines

joncongaroo(Phoenix(Ahwatukee)AZ)January 24, 2014

Has anyone had any success growing butterfly host pipevines in the low desert (Sunset zone 13) other than A. watsonii or A. fimbriata.
I found this one labeled A. quercifolia at a local nursery. Web searches yield no info about it.

I posted a Alabama search for Aristolochia querifolia and it came up spelled
That way with Aristolochia quercetorum in parenthesis following.
Folia...is there a labeling thing at the plant nursery involved???
Sorry,but I don't speak Spanish...

It must be A. quercetorum labeled wrong by the grower. Hopefully it will survive the hellish summers here and the caterpillars will enjoy it.

It did well last summer growing in a 14" pot under a Mescal bean tree. The pipevine cats grew fat on it, but they still favor the A. fimbriata.
