Sweet Autumn Clematis #2

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 1 November 2018 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Sweet autumn clematis is a plant in the buttercup family, Ranunculaceae. It is native to countries in northeastern Asia (China, Japan, Korea, Mongolia, Russia (Siberia), Taiwan). It was introduced into the United States in the late 1800s as an ornamental garden plant, and has naturalized in many of the eastern states. It is considered an invasive plant in New Jersey, South Carolina and some other eastern states.

Sweet autumn clematis is a vine with opposite, pinnately compound leaves, on climbing stems. The flowers are white, borne in fall.[2] The blooms are nicely fragrant and visited by bees. In late fall the fertilized flowers become fruit (seed) clusters of 5-6 fruits connected at the heads and each having a long white tail. As these dry, the color of the fruits fade and the tail becomes feather-like. In the spring the fruits detach and are dispersed by wind.
