That is the question – What’s up in that tree?

It is a blue clematis, a climbing vine, that adds a touch of colour to the woodland scene. These flowers are part of the buttercup family and can be found growing in open woods or rocky areas at low to mid elevations in Kootenay National Park. Soon these delicate flowers will be replaced by feathery tassels of plumed-tailed seeds.
