Sweet Autumn Clematis (Clematis terniflora)
Texas Sage ( Leucophyllum frutescens)
Clematis terniflora begins blooming in Texas around the last part of August. The blooms always remind me that cooler weather is on the way. The scent of this clematis is unusual. I wouldn't call it sweet but what do I know! Even if there was no scent, I would be drawn to this vine. It's like a snow storm in the hottest part of the summer!
