"Traveller's joy" is the name often used for this beautiful plant which are the words used for
Clematis in Russian and Bulgarian.
This describes the way the clematis loves to travel as it climbs!
The clematis symbolizes ingenuity or artifice, perhaps due to its clever ability
of climbing around trellises and walls.
Clematis also means mental beauty
The centre of the flower is beautiful as it unfolds.
Later in the season, the fruits formed have long silky appendages which are sometimes known as
"Old Man's Beard"
I will have to return to the gardens to try and capture them!
