Alabama leather flower [Clematis socialis]

The Alabama leather flower forms from a single rhizome that emerges in dense clusters up to 12 inches tall. Leaves at the base of the stem are scale like, simple in the middle, and in three to five leaf bunches at the top. The blue-violet, bell-shaped flower blooms from late April to May. It grows in soils of sticky, silty clay in grass-sedge vegetation that is found primarily along highway rights-of-way.

This species is endemic to northeastern Alabama. It is currently found at two sites: in St. Clair County, where 50 clones grow along a roadside right-of-way and adjacent woodland; and in Cherokee County, where a few clones occur along a highway right-of-way. Highway construction and erosion may have destroyed much of this species habitat, but the existing populations are currently under protection by the Fish and Wildlife Service.
