Sweet autumn clematis (センニンソウ Clematis terniflora) has begun to bloom last week in our garden and neighbourhood. It is a native clematis in Japan as well as in other east Asian countries. It usually bears flowers in early September in our area, however, this summer is cooler than usual and it has begun to flower earlier.

It locates behind the brick wall.  

Four-petaled white flowers with white stamens are so pure and beautiful.

Only one flower of a cultivar clematis ('Shishinden' 紫宸殿) is blooming now at the Rosa Angela in our garden.  


  1. Dear Poirot
    Beautiful photos of clematis in your garden. I am very fond of clematis too and I have some in the borders and some in pots. I have just added a herbaceous one to my collection - Clematis heracleifolia Wyevale - which has very pretty bluebell-like flowers and is scented. I think it is going to be one of my favourites!
    Happy gardening
    Best wishes

  2. Your white clematis look stunning. They are not varieties that I know.


I do appreciate your comments very much - they enhance my day. Thank You.
