Clematis pitcheri is a little known but fabulous native vine, ranging from Iowa south to Texas. The scrambling 6' tall vine with opposite trifoliate leaves, mingles unobtrusively like a set of contact lenses at an eyewear convention. We grow Clematis pitcheri through a michellia, and you don't even notice it's there until it begins to flower. The dainty, pendent, purple bell-shaped flowers with recurved tips adorn the vine from mid-May through September. Clematis pitcheri is also a good hummingbird haven.
