The subject of the article is the Polish terminology for varieties of cultivated Clematis on the basis of international nomenclature. Predominant in it are names of appellative origin, which give information on the beauty of these plants and constitute a business incentive. A second group consists of names from anthroponyms, also equivalent to toponyms that commemorate various figures - known and unknown - and places. Striking in the Polish terminology is the introduction of surnames of persons currently surrounded by universal respect, highly regarded in Poland in the recent past, or even still living, connected both with the political life as well as the religious life of our country and world, and even designations currently regarded as positive: phenomena, socio-political organizations, as well as revered sites of battle. These propria document not only the views of their authors, but also the system of values currently predominating.
