Clematis (from Ancient Greek klematis, a climbing plant, probably periwinkle) is a genus of mostly vigorous climbing lianas, with attractive flowers.
Some species are shrubby, and some others are herbaceous perennial plants. They are generally calcicole species, found throughout the temperate regions of both hemispheres, and also in mountains in the tropics, on limestone and other basic soils. The cool temperate species are deciduous, but many of the warmer climate species are evergreen.
Most species are known as Clematis in English, while some are also known as traveller's joy, old man's beard, leather flower, vase vine and virgin's bower, the last three being names used for North American species.
