Hello friends and Happy New Year!
For the first edition of Macro Monday in 2018, I chose to show you the flowers and fruits of Clematis Vitalba, a plant that in Romania meets in damp wetlands from the plain up to the the mountains. It is a liana that grows on trees, vines, fences.. Clematis vitalba is known as Old man’s beard. In Romania we call it Curpen de padure.
Clematis vitalba is a climber that has greeny-white flowers with fluffy underlying sepals. The many fruits formed in each inflorescence have long silky appendages which, seen together, give the characteristic appearance of old man’s beard.
