Is this a Clematis or?
« on: August 11, 2020, 16:45 »
We have this in our garden, it is very prolific and we are unsure if it is a clematis or something else.  It does try to take over so are thinking it is not and maybe more a "weed" or an undesirable.
Any ideas?

Looks like a Clematis to me, narrowing it down is more difficult as there are quite a few with white four petaled flowers with 'fluffy' centres (technical term  :D)
Is it scented, and is it flowering now? More info might narrow the list down  ;)

Isn't it the same as the 'photos I posted ?   and the answer was Myrtle.    Mrs Bouquet

Sometimes my mind wanders, if found please return.

I think it is Old man's beard aka (Clematis vitalba) a 'wild growing type that has hundreds of small star shaped blooms from July to September, seen generally in hedgerows and trees along the roadside.' https://www.taylorsclematis.co.uk/clematis-vitalba-oldmans-beard.html

Yes that certainly looks like it, and it is prolific.
Thanks

Slap wrists Mrs B.    Look carefully in future.     :lol:   Whatever it is, it's very pretty.      Mrs Bouquet
