Creates quite a commotion with an explosion of 5” semi-double, purple blue flowers ignited with pink tips. Lavender single flowers follow for a totally different enjoyment. Prune dead stem tips (only) in early spring to allow old wood to bloom.
Gracefully meandering over fences, trellises or through shrubbery, clematis supplies vertical interest. Every perennial garden should have at least one of these incredible vines.
Note: Because we are trimming the plants to keep them in bounds here at Bluestone, the first flowers you see will be singles from the new growth.
