The Plants came to me in good condition. I was so pleased how they were packed to protect them. I was really afraid of ordering plants that had to be shipped to me. I followed the directions carefully and planted them as instructed. I already had a special place in mind, so without further ado I planted them. They have not wilted at all, flourishing and climbing the Trellis I already had in place for them. It is amazing to see how much they climb each day. I am waiting to see as they mature and cannot hardly wait to get a peak at the beautiful, unusual blooms. I pray it is this year that I get to see them. Thank you for such a wonderful opportunity to get this unusual plant, at a good price. I will feel secure in ordering other items since these have done so well. Thanks again!!!!

Many people plant Pipevine as a host plant for the beautiful Pipevine Swallowtail but this species of Pipevine--Aristolochia Giantia--is native to South America and actually toxic to Pipevine Swallowtail larvae that eat the leaves. Many gardners here in Texas found this out the hard way. Best to find native plant varieties when the goal is to help propogate local species.

I love Hirt's but vine was not the healthiest..yellow..brown spotted brittle leaves..I have recently transplanted with a trellis and seems to be recovering ok. Fast shipping..packaged well..will order again without hesitation. I have always received impeccable plants and products from Hirt's..unfortunately not this time.

This plant died after a couple of weeks, but it may have been from the extreme heat in our area. I can't really tell if it would have been a good plant. Shipping and condition upon arrival were fine.

Our local park has this plant inside the conservatory and it is absolutely beautiful. I bought two as they seem hard to come by.

I got this for my husband because his grandma had one when he was little and he wanted one. I missed the part about it being a foot big. They are beautiful, and really an amazing plant. The problem is that it has taken over our fence and is growing into a tree we have.It really spreads out. So we will be cutting it back to ground this winter and hope it comes back. I would buy from them again.

This one I bought was very slow growing, compared to the one I bought from Audubon, last year. Not as pretty either. I made a mistake and cut the one down last year in the fall and lost it.

but it was starting to wilt by the time it arrived in my mailbox. The soil was dry. I gave it some water, & it perked up. Has been thriving ever since.
