This prized East Coast native is another of the little-known bush clematis. While Clematis ochroleuca is certainly not a common native, it is usually found on sandy grasslands from New York to Georgia. In late spring, the 15" tall x 15" wide clumps are topped with pendulous, fuzzy creamy-white bells. Following flowering, plants are covered with splendid seedheads which resemble large attractive golden balls of lint. I 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.
