Clematis reticulata is a little-known US native cousin to Clematis pitcheri that calls the dry sandy scrub lands from Oklahoma southeast to Florida home. I'd like to thank We-Du founder Dick Weaver for introducing me to the plant in northern Florida. The short vine, eventually to 9' long, is composed of wiry stems and single, round leaves featuring its namesake netted veins (aka reticulation). The plants are adorned with small, down-turned pitchers, often bicolored white, purple, yellow, or pink, from late April to June...a hummingbird favorite. Clematis reticulata is perfect to be woven through evergreens and conifers for added interest.
