Artist's Description

PICK OF THE DAY in Bubbling Artists!!, 5th February, 2014

CHALLENGE WINNER – Avatar Challenge – Strange Shapes in the Wildflowers of the World Group, 22nd March, 2014

TOP TEN (2nd place) in An Unusual Shaped Flower Challenge in the Close Ups In Nature Group, 17th March 2015

Aristolochia gigantea.
This is also known as the Giant Brazilian Dutchman’s Pipe. It is a robust, twisting climber that can grow around a tree up to over 30 feet tall. It has fleshy heart-shaped leaves and large flowers over a foot long and around 6 inches wide.
These flowers usually grow in tropical regions from Panama to Brazil but it is also hardy enough not to die off in frost, and is an evergreen. It is found in tropical forests near streams and gullies
I found this one in a botanical house in a park in central Auckland, North Island, New Zealand.

Camera used: Pentax K30
