Purple clematis

Earlier this spring, I bought a purple leatherflower (Clematis pitcheri) from the Texas Native Plant Society in Boerne. The vine, which grows on our chain-link fence, bloomed recently. And then something broke off a branch, darn it. But then I noticed the beautiful (fluffly!) seed heads. So I carried the branch inside and scanned an image (below). Awhile ago, I finally photographed a close-up. I've submitted both to the Image Gallery at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, where I'm contributing photographer.
