Notes: Clematis virginiana (Woodbine) is a lovely and fairly common woodland vine that can spread somewhat aggressively amongst other present trees and shrubs, though rarely to the point of strangling, so not to worry, but to periodically keep in check. The flowers produce a sweet odor and the seed head is a charming and distinct fluffy "beard". Deer tend to leave this alone. Caution: The leaves are poisonous to humans.
