Botany picture #39: Clematis flammula
Fruiting Clematis flammula (Ranunculaceae), France, 2008. I assume the name is derived from the reddish fruits because the flowers are white. In fact in flower it is a bit similar to better known Clematis vitalba except for being smaller and having more slender leaflets.
