    Other features: silvery seedheads



Large double bell-shaped mid-blue early spring flowers followed by attractive silvery seedheads retained throughout the summer. This early spring-flowering clematis is ideal for covering a north-facing fence or wall. It also looks lovely trained to climb into small trees or allowed to scramble through neighbouring shrubs.



  • Garden care: No routine pruning is necessary. If the spread of the plant needs to be restricted, prune immediately after flowering, cutting back overlong shoots to healthy buds. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.
