    I've lived in Texas most of my life and I've never seen this vine before. It's covering a large cedar tree near Lake Travis. It's has seed clusters with long white "hairs" that are quite large and fluffly. No odor. No thorns. Small leaves. Does anyone know what this is? I think it's beautiful! There should be a photo attached to this posting. Thanks.

    Hi

    Check out Clematis Drummondii. aka Texas Virgin's Bower/
    Old mans beard/ Grandads Beard/ Goats Beard. Going on memory it's been a while since I've been down there.

    Note: I was told that you can make a tea from the leaves?
    Does anyone Know what the tea was used for ?


    Regards Doug
