Clematis virginiana (Ranunculaceae)
Virgin's Bower is lovely as it climbs and wraps around neighboring shrubs and trees at the forest's edge. Drifts of small, pure-white flowers appear in midsummer; fall yields showy feathery seed pods. Because of its precocious nature, position this native Clematis with care in cultivated areas. Deadheading recommended to prevent seeding in. Not for the small garden.
