Sugarbowl

The Sugarbowl wildflower has many names including Hairy Clematis, Sugar Bowls, Douglas' Clematis, and the Leather Flower.

The Sugarbowl Clematis hirsutissima var. hirsutissima wildflower grows in Ponderosa forests and open grasslands. I photographed this specimen on the Evergreen Mountain Trail. Having never seen this flower before, I am seeing it in many places this year.
