Traveller's Joy
 

 

Traveller's Joy or Wild Clematis is a woody climbing plant that can reach considerable heights. Where the plants are together in numbers and covered with trusses of creamy-white flowers (from mid summer to early autumn), the effect can be considerable. Even more conspicuous is the 'Old Man's Beard' effect of the greyish covering of the fruits in autumn and winter.

Very common in the south east, less so further north, rare in Scotland. Clambers up hedgerows and trees on lime.
