Dutchman’s Pipe Vine toxic to some butterflies.
After reading The Australian Geographic issue 149, Mar/Apr 2019, we are surprised your website is giving tips on how to grow Dutchman’s Pipe Vine when the Australian National University is telling us this plant is a non native and an invasive species. It’s toxic leaves are threatening the existence of some butterflies in QLD and North Eastern NSW. Could you comment on this please.
