Wow! I wish that I had seen

Wow! I wish that I had seen these while I was in Chile. I see from the wikipedia entry that the flowers are 15 - 30cm tall!

I got it

By why is there not an entry for it in CoL???

My two observations dont link to this so it seems that iSpot Global links via the dictionary (iSpot ZA does not and would see the other obervations).

Aristolochia of Chile

Hello, Jonathan! It's a shame that you hadn't seen fox ears while you were in Chile. I hope that you come back soon to know them. There are only two species of Aristolochia in Chile, both endemic to this country, yellow fox ear (Aristolochia bridgesii) and purple fox ear (A. chilensis).

Sorry for my English! I'm trying to improve it every single day of my life!
