This endangered native species was first discovered in 1980 in Huntsville, Alabama. It is native to woodland areas of southern Tennessee and northern Alabama, often growing on rock, rocks, and boulders. Its common name is Huntsville Vasevine or Leather-Flower. It is one of the leather-flower kinds of Clematis that get their name from the sepals of the urn-like or bell-like flowers being thick and succulent.
