Sorry, that's not it.
Our clematis is small. Its flowers hang upside-down. It stays low to the ground and scoffs at a trellis. It's pollinated by a variety of insects, but big, burly bumble bees in particular love it. It's native to our great state of Wyoming. What more could you want in a clematis?
Viewers, meet the Sugarbowl Clematis (Clematis scotii)!
Check back again soon for updates on other flowers in bloom. There are lots - if you're in Laramie, feel welcome to visit the green roof any time, any day of the week!
