Wild Flowers of Pittsburgh

Virgin’s Bower (Clematis virginiana)

The individual four-petaled (often five-petaled) flowers are attractive, but the amazing density of flowers is what makes this vine one of our great spectacles. Though it’s a native, it’s more commonly seen in gardens than in the wild, and the occasional wild volunteers are often descended from nearby garden plants.
