Herbaceous Clematis

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 22 June 2020 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

I'm not certain of this flower, but it resembled a clematis. But all of its blossoms face down toward the ground. And it's not a climbing variety. I had to get down low to capture this shot.

Spotted in the Lyons Woods Forest Preserve in Waukegan, Illinois on June 2, 2017.

Thank you to yo for identifying this variety!

It does look like clematis. Mine grows on a vine, not stems though.

I agree this is a clematis. they are best seen full on like your center one. the downward blooms are a nice supporting cast.

Très belle !
Certainement une clématite herbacée. Elles ne sont pas toutes grimpantes.
