Virgins Bower

Virgins Bower

Clematis virginiana

Old Man Beard


An amazing, fast growing vine that does well even in partially shaded dry areas.  Small white flowers cover the plant in summer later becoming fascinating plume-tailed seed heads.  One of the few native vines that bends its leaf petioles in order to climb.
