Tylophora aristolochioides is a perennial vine found in hill or mountain forests. Stems are slender and extend long, with few hairs. Nearly hairless leaves with 1-3cm long petioles are of opposite phyllotaxis, in the shape of a triangular, long lanceolate, with tips longly pointed and bases cordate. Inflorescences from axils have dark purple flowers; corollas 4-6mm in diameter deeply cut themselves into five, with white floccus on the lobes. Bloom time: June-September.
