This delightful little Clematis is another native Australian species. It is found only on the island state of Tasmania and is very unusual among Clematis, in that it is not a climber, but just a low upright perennial plant. There is a New Zealand species which has similar habits to this one. It grows mainly among rocks and on stony soils. When I lived in Tasmania, I collected seed of this plant and had three plants established in my garden, but we moved to Victoria before they flowered.
