Travellers Joy Clematis
White Meadowsweet

Traveller's Joy Clematis is a species of flowering plant that is native to North America. This plant produces vines which are quite aggressive and can climb to heights of 10-20 feet. Traveller's Joy produces white flowers between July and September and typically grows on the edge of forests, moist slopes, fence rows and on streambanks.

White Meadowsweet is a woody, deciduous shrub that begins to bloom in early summer with small white and pink flowers. Its foliage turns from a light green into an attractive golden-yellow later in the fall.

The White Meadowsweet, also known as Mead-Wort or Bride-Wort, is favored by birds and butterflies but is largely ignored by deer. They produce small brown berries in the summer, and while they are technically edible, they are not sweet and are more desired by wildlife.
