    Athough native to Europe, this plant is

    Can I say "Athough native to Europe, this plant is...."?
    What I was taught is that after "athough" we use a clause, but I have just found above sentence.
    I think they obmitted something in that sentence? Just my opinion.
    Thanks!

    They didn't omit anything that needs to be there. There are a couple of words which could be added, but they're not obligatory.

    Although [it is] native to Europe, this plant is ...
    meaning
    Despite the fact that it is native to Europe, this plant is ...
