Himalayan Clematis

A wild flower which blooms profusely in May in the Himalayas is the Himalayan Clematis- Clematis montana or Clematis himalaya.
The four petalled white flowers have pale pink centres . The climbers are seen enveloping trees . There are bushes of Clematis too, in all sorts of wild places.

  3. Beautiful, I didn't know they were native to India. You have such wonderful flora there, and a long trip to India in on my wishing list, hopefully to become true soon.
