Fritillaria thunbergi. Look at those tendrils

The flowers aren't spectacular but those tendrils. Wow. We grow, in China Valley, Polygonatum cirrhifolium that also clambers with tendril-tipped leaves. Similar strategies. The Polygonatum uses its tendrils on other shoots of the same plant; it can make a mess. This Fritillaria doesn't seem to do that.
