Aristolochia castellana (Nardi) Costa
perennial herb < 0,4 m, globose tuber
2-4 cm, odour barely noticeable
thick-shelled, compressed triangular, large elaiosome,
stratification 1-3 years
A small flowered variant of Aristolochia pallida had been overlooked for years until investigation revealed there's another species belonging to the extremely variable pallida-complex in 2008.
Originating from the central mountains in Spain this tiny species can mainly be distinguished from the 'classic' A. pallida by the distribution area.
Although not as large-flowered as other species from the same clade A. castellana produces amazing, erect zic-zac shoots with flower buds in every leaf axil.
