Aristolocia1011

Go back to weekly blog


Just to think in some countries like Australia this plant is a distructive weed as it is killing off a native butterfly which prefers to lay its egg on this palnt, but the palnt is toxic to its larvae. Over here It is an exotic flower. Magnificent as well. Last year it flowered all summer, but this year it has just started to flower again. It survived out in the unheated conservatory last winter and only suffered slightly. During the summer I plied it with several large doses of potassium, which is probably why it has started to flower.
