Pipevine is a beautiful, deciduous vine capable of climbing 15-30 feet. It’s a vigorous plant easily grown on an arbor, trellis, or wall in proper conditions. It’s pleasing to the eye with its large heart-shaped leaves and unusual flowers that resemble Dutch smoking pipes, hence the name! Its dense foliage is capable of creating deep shade on whatever surface you allow it to climb – porches, verandas, pillars, etc. When the time comes to control growth, it’s recommended to prune in late winter. This is an important host plant to the gorgeous pipevine swallowtail butterfly, which is pictured above.

At Direct Native Plants, we take many precautions to make sure your plants will arrive in the best condition possible.

Our perennials are grown in a 4” quart-sized pot. These plants are then cut back to fit our packaging, placed in a protective clamshell container (made from recycled materials), and then shipped to you in a cardboard box.

Trees and shrubs are grown in a 7” tall container (referred to as a 1-gallon pot), and depending on the species will be between 12” and 36”. We bag the root section of these plants to prevent them from drying out in transit and ship them in a tall cardboard box. PLEASE NOTE: These boxes can be shipped in bundles up to 6. After that we start a new package, so keep this in mind if you’re trying to get the best shipping rates.

Direct Native Plants supports the United States Postal Service, so your plants will ship via USPS Priority Mail. Orders ship out Monday through Wednesday of each week, and depending on how close you are to our nursery in Maryland, shipping will take anywhere from 1-4 business days.
