Clematis is a genus of about 300 species of flowers within the buttercup family Ranunculaceae. Their garden hybrids have been popular among gardeners since the mid-1800s. Most species are commonly known as Clematis, while other names for varietals include, "Traveller's Joy," for British native C. vitalba by the herbalist John Gerard; "Virgin'sBbower" for C. viticella; "Old man's beard," applied to several with prominent seedheads; and "leather flower" or "vase vine" for the North American Clematis viorna.
