Clematis is a genus of 300 species of flowering vines in the buttercup family, Ranunculaceae. Many species are native to China and Japan. Some of the cooler temperate species are deciduous, while the warmer climate species are evergreen. Although many of these plants are climbers, there are some species that can be grown as shrubs.
