Great Fall Look

I came across this plant while recently hiking in a meadow. I always forget how much I like the look of Virgin's Bower (Clematis virginiana) in the fall.  





 The seed pods create unique interest in the fall months, and the showy white flowers are fabulous in the spring.  Not surprisingly there is an invasive vine that looks very similar. The difference is that the invasive vine has rounded lobes as opposed to the toothed leaves present in the Clematis.  In the right setting, this plant can form great privacy hedges, and attracts hummingbirds and bees.
