Dutchman’s PipePosted: June 16, 2016
Dutchman’s Pipe is a visually interesting flower.
This plant has had its ups and downs. It is in a large pot and was almost dead, but suddenly started growing again. I moved it closer to the back door where it could get plenty of TLC.
I was rewarded with a flowers. This Dutchman’s Pipe is a tropical and the flower is nearly 7 inches long. It puts out its scent in the morning and smells lemony.
There are about 500 varieties of Dutchman’s and some natives grow in Eastern United States. I pinned its smaller cousin next to it.
The design on the flower is mesmerizing.
