I have found this plant in Trabzon, a city in Turkey. I found it near the highway. I assume it isn't planted intentionally, but maybe left after previous ornamantel plantings. It smells good I think. I am interested in it because of the nice scent. Please could you help me to find what species is this.

edit: and I forgot to add its fruits. I want to plant this vine, but if there are better varieties, I can plant them instead.

Sadly flowers lost their conditions because i collect them 2days ago. and i transported them in a plastic bag.

This is a clematis, probably clematis vitalba.

This plant is native to Europe and Turkey. It also occurs on the westcoast of the USA and Australia/New Zealand, but it is probably introduced there. Source occurences

Picture from Dutch wiki: enter image description here

Many clematis species have a very nice smell, and both the flower and the fruit are also nice to look at. That is why clematis species are grown in garden often, with countless varieties. They differ in color (most are white, pink or purple), in flower size and in flower time (spring/summer).

It's a very un-remarkable clematis, the wild type. it looks like a bush. children smoked the stalks in old times. There are much more suitable garden varieties. clematis can develop a stalk 5cm wide after enough time, they are my favourite climber along with yellow clematis, passion fruit and wisteria. clematis seeds grow very easily.
