Clematis japonica / Hanshouduru ハンショウヅル

Clematis japonica is a climbing shrub inhabiting forest edges in fields and mountains, with dark purple stems. Leaves are of opposite phyllotaxis and a ternate compound leaf; leaflets measure 3-8cm in length, in an oval shape, with 3-5 prominent veins on surfaces and serrations on the upper part of margins. Leaf axils emerge long peduncles, set single dark red-purple flowers, and open facing downward. The flowers lack petals; sepals, four in number, are about 3cm long, with many white hairs on the margins. Styles elongate themselves long and bear dense, long hairs on them. Bloom time: May-June.
