Clematis


Clematis: Generalities




In the eighteenth century and in the Victorian Age the clematis was planted by the English in their gardens, as its colorful and abundant flowers were considered well-wishing for the inhabitants of the house and for all the guests who came to the same. On the basis of this value even in the English countryside locks of clematis were used to surround the fields in order to obtain a good harvest. In the countryside of central and southern Europe, clematis grows spontaneously, giving a touch of color and vivacity to brambles and brushwood; for this reason it is also called "the joy of the traveler".
In the language of flowers, therefore, clematis is a sign of luck and good omen.
