Anemoclema glaucifolium is a vulnerable and threatened species endemic to the Hengduan Mountains. In this study, we reported a complete plastome of A. glaucifolium, which was de novo assembled using Next-generation Sequencing data. The plastome of A. glaucifolium was quadripartite and 160,400 bp in size, including two inverted repeats (31,256 bp for each) that separate one large single copy (80,251 bp) and one small single copy (17,637 bp) regions. The plastome contained 113 unique genes (with 80 protein-coding, 4 ribosomal RNA and 29 tRNA genes), and 24 entire genes, and partial rps12 (799 bp), rps36 (3 bp) and ycf1 (1097 bp) duplicated in the IR regions. The trnT-UGU tRNA was lost in A. glaucifolium. A maximum likelihood tree using the plastome data recovered A. glaucifolium sister to Clematis spp.
