Many of the Aristolochia family of plants make suitable larval host for the Pipevine Swallowtail butterfly, though not all. When using pipevine as a host it is important to know which ones will kill the caterpillars. These would possibly be hybrids intentionally cultivated to be "pest-free". These are likely so numerable that here we will focus on the most highly successful in this family of plants.

Aristolochia macrophylla

This plant has a bloom and then the pod is formed separately as you can see in this photo.
