The Gaping Dutchman's Pipe, is an evergreen plant from the tropical regions of South America. It does well in containers with regular watering. The flowers give a flare of the bizarre to a tropical collection. From spring to summer, it produces quantities of 12 cm long fragrant flowers scattered among the drooping leaves. The flowers trap insect pollinators and facilitate cross pollination. Highly entertaining flowers; a vigorous grower, the outrageous blooms are patterned with a network of burgundy, red, and purple over a creamy-yellow background. The fruit is a green capsule maturing to brown and opening to release many fertile seeds.
