sweet autumn clematis, Clematis terniflora

Sweet autumn clematis is an east Asian species that has found its way into our gardens. From there it seems to be almost randomly finding its way into the wild. When it came up as a random choice for today's entry, it seemed somehow right. Particularly since it is blooming now, covering trellises and wild shrubs with a coat of white. This clematis has been reported from AL, AR, CA, CT, DE, FL, GA, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MA, MD, MI, MN, MO, MS, NC, NE, NH, NJ, NY, OH, OK, PA, RI, SC, TN, TX, VA, VT, WV, and ON. Lucas Co OH, 9/2/13.
