'Odoriba' is a hybrid between two natives, Clematis crispa and C. viorna, which are both closely related to C. texensis. Valued for its long and profuse flowering, it is easy to grow in full sun or light shade and good soil. It has nodding, bell-shaped, deep rose flowers that open to reveal white inside. Bloom time is mid-summer and vines can get to 9 feet long. Blooms form on the current/new growth so plants should be pruned in late winter or early spring to two strong sets of buds on each stem.
