  2. That’s something I’d love to find in the woods but it’s another one that doesn’t grow here. The only wild one we have has small white flowers.

  4. Isn’t it strange, in your part of the world Clematis is a wild flower and where I live they are cultivated and regarded as ‘special’ for gardens (yards)! Very pretty.

    • I also have a domestic clematis by the back door, but it is entirely different than the wild ones.

  5. Clematis grows mainly in residential gardens here, but it’s so pretty against green foliage that I wish it grew in the wild. Lovely images.

    • It is very lovely against the background of shrubbery and evergreens.

  6. We have several varieties of clematis, both native and cultivated for the garden trade, but I’m not sure we have anything quite like this. It looks like its made of cellophane!

    • In the northwest there are four species in the genus “clematis” and this is the most unusual. The petals are quite fragile.

  7. Beautiful. We had in our small garden some Clematis, but they died slowly during many years – maybe too hard winter. Thank You presenting them.

    • These are wild and live in well protected places in the forest. They are also quite widespread so when one place may have a winter problem other places keep them protected.
