The Dutchman's Pipe is a deciduous vine needing shade, moisture and producing pipe-shaped, greenish flowers with purple veins in winter-spring before the heart-shaped leaves appear. It can be found on dry slopes in chaparral and foothill woodlands in the foothills of the northern Sierra Nevada mountains from Sacramento County north through the Sacramento valley.
