Woodbine, Old Man's Beard, Devil's Darning Needle Clematis virginiana
Old Man's Beard is a fall-blooming clematis whose twining stems grow rapidly and twine their way over fences and trellis work. Its fast-growing habit provides the space for masses of sweet, fragrant white bloom from late August through October. Hummingbirds and native bees love it!
