Is Dutchman’s Pipe considered an annual or perennial?

Ours was eaten completely off by swallowtail caterpillars and the vines are now very woody and dry. We have cut it back to the soil. Will new growth appear. We are in South Florida, so is it too hot right now?

This is a perennial. It attracts the butterflies by nature. They are considered beneficial since they are pollinators. This article will help you with the care of these plants: [1]

Luckily, they should come back. I never pruned mine and the next spring the leaves just filled in on the vine. However I am in zone 6 and you are in hardiness zone 10. The article below gives specific prunng information.
