Clematis texensis

Clematis texensis

Clematis texensis is a scarlet-flowered climbing vine, a member of the family ranunculaceae, native to Texas, USA. Because of its thick-textured petals it is sometimes called the Leather Flower or Scarlet leather flower. Crosses with other clematis varieties have yielded varieties showier than the species, such as "Duchess of Albany," "Princess Diana," "Gravetye Beauty," "Sir Trevor Lawrence", and "Etoile Rose", in colors from pink to dark scarlet red. Texensis and its crosses tend to have four petals; blossoms resemble lily-flowered tulips, and sometimes display as downward-facing bells.
