Sir find the individual of each. All are climbers on shrubs growing on slopes at elevation of 500-600 M above mean sea level


Are these not specimen of the same clematis?


Clematis smilacifolia


This is Clematis hedysarifolia DC. (Connectives are well produced beyond anthers)

Other species are difficult to identify.

Clematis hedysarifolia DC.
at Yeoor Hills on November 6, 2010 


I was waiting to see this.

Clematis edysarifolia
Clematis flowers are apetalous.
This is the only wild species with purple flowers in Maharashtara.
Flower size 1.5 to 2.5 cm across.
The more mature flowers will probably look more purple.

Clematis hedysarifolia [almost] blooming:  … posted photographs of this blooming at Mulshi, Pune last week.  
Photographed at my farm at Shahapur. Last weekend only buds were seen [Photographs 1 to 3]. Was hoping it would be in full bloom today, but was disappointed [Photographs 4 to 6]. Am not sure about my plans next weekend and hence have posted the photographs today.
 Another interesting aspect was the stem tendrils which encircle the supporting tree [Photographs 7 to 9].
 Have previously posted photographs of this fruiting and they are available at this link :  
https://groups.google.com/group/indiantreepix/browse_thread/thread/c0…


…., it is not the stem tendril but the common petiole that twines around a support. In Naravelia of the same family the terminal leaflet is modified into a tendril like structure. 


Am aware of the orchids presence there, but not sure of the species – possibly D.barbatulum

-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 … earlier thread.


etymology :: hedysarifolia: Would like to know the derivation of the epithet hedysarifolia (in context of Clematis hedysarifolia). Logically, it could mean “resembling leaves of Hedysarum” Do leaves of Clematis hedysarifolia resemble the leaves of Hedysarum (belonging to Fabaceae) which has pinnate leaves ?


– Now, I see some of the Desmodium (syn Hedysarum) have trifoliate (pinnate) leaves.


– I think you already got the answer!
