Freaky deaky Clematis

I’ll be honest, this photo was taken a few weeks ago. Or months. I don’t really pay attention, time does its thing whatever. Anyway, I found this while weeding in one our more exotic gardens and asked around my colleagues to see if anyone knew what it was. We thought because of the leaves, it must be a Clematis, but none of us had seen a flower like this.

After I got home I did some googling around and discovered this photo, so the centre of Clematises do do this, but is it normal to do it this much?

Like the segments of an orange. Barely a flower at all.

This has just been a week when I’ve proved how little I know about plants, right?

  1. Hey, even experts have a scope to improve!
    I have been reading avidly for 25 years: my average being 1-2 books per week. Still, I have only skimmed the surface of the ocean of English and Hindi books.
