Western White Clematis is found throughout much of western North America.  In southern British Columbia and Washington. It is found throughout much of California into northwest Mexico.

Growth: Western White Clematis is a climbing vine with stems often to 18 feet (6m), but they may climb up to 60 feet (20 m).

Habitat:  It often grows along creek bottoms, forest edges, riparian thickets, and in Ponderosa Pine forests and sagebrush deserts. Wetland designation: FAC-, Facultative, it is equally likely to occur in wetlands or non-wetlands.

Clusters of white flowers arise from the leaf axils; male and female flowers on separate plants in mid August, giving way to silky, feathery achenes in clusters that are likened to an “old man’s beard” or a goat’s beard.

Western White Clematis can be used in the landscape just as are ornamental varieties.  It can be trained on a trellis or allowed to climb a tree.  It has attractive white flower clusters; and interesting fluffy seed clusters.   It is drought tolerant and may be useful for erosion control and hillside plantings.
