Clematis brachiata, also known as Traveller’s Joy is a deciduous climber bearing masses of small scented white flowers between February to May. It is one of the only four varieties which are native to South Africa.
The name is derived from the Greek klema meaning a vine and the Latin brachiatta meaning branched at right angles. The name refers to the angle the branches come off from the stem. The flowers have 4 pointed sepals and a big puff of yellow stamens in the centre.
