Dear friends,

My picture of year 2010 ... Clematis smilacifolia.
To me this is a very interesting sighting at Yeoor Hills (part of Sanjay Gandhi National Park) especially because it is considered as a rare plant.

Regards,
Dinesh

Dear friends,

I find my mistake in ID of this plant ... it is not Clematis smilacifolia ... it must be C. hedysarifolia.

Few aspects differentiating Clematis smilacifolia from C. hedysarifolia : the flower is 3 cm plus, very fragrant, the sepals' violet colour cannot be missed ... may read more in Shrikant ji's earlier thread.


Regards
Dinesh
