Aristolochia Grandiflora - Good or Bad?

11 years ago

There is conflicting information on this plant. Does anyone have certain knowledge? I know this is not on the list of host plants but perhaps it could be??

I was so excited to find this beautiful healthy vine at Lowes and now I'm wondering if I am going to have to rip it out.

I'm so frustrated with buying inappropriate plants at these stores. I remember buying tulips for my yard when I first moved here thinking if they were available they must be okay. I also made the mistake of purchasing a Lady Margaret passion vine years ago when I first started gardening for the butterflies only to learn it was a toxic plant. I'm so tempted to start a "Don't waste your money" post.

Well that started me on a rant! LOL

Back to my original question, is the Grandiflora history?

Thank you - Kathy
