Looking for a hardy, easy-to-grow climbing plant for your garden? Look no further than Clematis columbiana, also known as Climbing Purple Virgin's Bower, Rock Clematis, Whorl-leaved Virgin's Bower, or Wild Clematis. This semi-woody perennial can reach up to 12 feet in length and produces stunning blue to reddish-purple flowers that are pollinated by bees and flies. The plant is native to the northwest U.S. and Canada and is an excellent garden choice for areas east of the Cascades. In addition to its beauty, Clematis columbiana has many practical uses. The seed floss can be used as tinder for starting fires or as insulation in shoes, and an infusion of the leaves can be used as a hair wash to prevent gray hair or as a lotion on swollen knees and ankles. The pounded, dampened leaves can also be applied as a poultice to treat sweaty feet, scabs, and eczema. This plant prefers moist, well-drained soil and can thrive in semi-shade or no shade, making it an easy addition to any garden.
