Low desert pipevines

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. there a labeling thing at the plant nursery involved???
Sorry,but I don't speak Spanish...

RE: Low desert pipevines

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