This offering is from our original seed collection of the wonderful native bush clematis, Clematis ochroleuca, from a mountainous population at Bald Knob, Virginia (Franklin County). In late spring, the 15" tall x 15" wide clumps are topped with pendulous, fuzzy, creamy-white bells. Following flowering, the plants are covered with splendid seedheads which resemble large, attractive, golden balls of lint. We like lint! Clematis ochroleuca is perfect for a special spot in the rock garden. Save seed, since Clematis ochroleuca is virtually impossible to root from cuttings.
