whitehair leather flower, Clematis albicoma

Here's a fascinating variation on the clematis theme. It only does appearances in nine counties in western Virginia and neighboring West Virginia. It grows only on exposed areas of Upper Devonian shale. It is an upright herb, getting at most about eighteen inches tall. Edgewood Gardens, Chester Co PA, 4/21/21. Buttercup family, Ranunculaceae.
