Western White Clematis

Clematis ligusticifolia

  • Woody vine up to 5m high that forms a dense growth
  • Pinnately compound leaves, usually with 5-7 wide lance-shaped leaflets
  • Clusters of small white flowers, 5-6cm across, bloom in mid to late summer
  • Wind borne seed is small with a single hairy wing

Landscape Use:

  • Will climb a trellis without trying and can quickly provide a screen or lush green living wall
  • Use to create a screen or as an attractive cover in a wide range of sites within your landscape; it will even grow under that spruce
  • Be creative with this vine and encourage it to spread across areas where a groundcover is needed
  • Unique four-season features include dainty white flowers that give way to prominent seed heads which remain on the vine through the winter
  • Should be used in place of non-hardy introduced clematis
  • A nectar source for butterflies
  • Drought tolerant
  • Full sun or partial shade

Special Conditions:

  • The mythology of clematis is that it needs cool roots; this native clematis does not require any special care and is another fine, attractive native plant too often overlooked in lieu of the introduced varieties of clematis
