Flower Detail

Clematis tangutica

These tend to be more shrubby in my garden than others. They also reseed a lot. The yellow blossoms are smaller than my other clematis; the seed heads remind me of dandelion seed heads in that they are very feathery (probably why they reseed so well!). I've placed them at the edge of the garden where the seeds blow away into desert areas where they don't take hold.
