California Dutchman's Pipe or Pipe Vine is a deciduous vine with one inch purple striped pipe-shaped flowers. Pipe vine likes part-shade. This California native vine has become fairly drought tolerant with time and seems to grow ok with Salvia spathacea, hummingbird sage on north slopes or under live oaks. This grows in shade in the central Sierras in moist places and the associated plants are Tellima, Heuchera micrantha and Umbellularia californica. It will carpet the ground and grow into the trees if it is happy. In one of the Sierra spots the trunk' of the vine was the size of your arm and the vine extended at least fifty feet up into the tree. Thousands of flowers. Larva of Pipe-vine Swallowtail (Battus philenor) live on this plant.
