Clematis Genus Clematis

Observer

Date

June 29, 2019 04:05 PM PDT

Description

Not yet in flower, so not really possible to key; however, looking through illustrations in the Intermountain Flora, Clematis orientalis seems a possibility based on leaves. The plant appears naturalized here, perhaps introduced by a miner's family, living here in the late 1800s or early 1900s. Vine climbing over big sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata tridentata) near the edge of the creek in lower West Union Canyon, west end of the Union townsite, Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park, Shoshone Range, Nye County, Nevada; elev. 6740 ft.
