Clematis quadribracteolata is a small species of Clematis endemic to New Zealand found in open scrub lands and grassland. C. quadribracteolata is small and inconspicuous compared to other Clematis species. Flowers have four brown bracts that give the species its name, with the flowers themselves a greenish yellow. Flowering is in spring, with seed in late spring to early summer. The species was first described by William Colenso in the 1880s.
The species is currently classified as threatened nationally, and is regionally uncommon in Marlborough, however examples are found on the Wither Hills.
This example was observed in the Wither Hills Farm Park.
