BULK WHOLESALE – Clematis vitalba, Old man’s beard, Traveller’s Joy – CLEMATIS SEEDS – Attracts Butterflies & Honey Bees – Zones 4 and UP – By MySeeds.Co (02500 Seeds – 1/4 oz)

Clematis vitalba (also known as Old man’s beard and Traveller’s Joy) is a shrub of the Ranunculaceae family.

Clematis vitalba is a climbing shrub with branched, grooved stems, deciduous leaves, and scented greeny-white flowers with fluffy underlying sepals. The many fruits formed in each inflorescence have long silky appendages which, seen together, give the characteristic appearance of Old Man’s beard. The grooves along the stems of C. vitalba can easily be felt when handling the plant.

The flowers of this species are eaten by the larvae of moths including The V-Pug and Double-striped Pug and the leaves by Willow Beauty.

The leaves are analgesic, diuretic and rubefacient. The boiled roots and stems are used as a cure for the itch. When applied in the nostrils, the plant juice has been used to relieve migraine attacks, but it can also destroy the mucous membranes. The plant should not be taken internally because it is poisonous.

A homeopathic remedy is made from the plant. It is used in the treatment of rheumatism and skin eruptions. The plant is used in Bach flower remedies – the keywords for prescribing it are ‘Indifference’, ‘Dreaminess’, ‘Inattention’ and ‘Unconsciousness’. It is also one of the five ingredients in the ‘Rescue remedy’.
