A recent and exciting introduction from Japan, the nodding bell shaped flowers of this cultivar are carried on sturdy stems and can grow to 5cm long. Their rich violet-blue petals have a light lavender edging and look lovely over a long period from mid summer to autumn. A semi-herbaceous, non-clinging form which can be trained onto a trellis or left to scramble amongst the flower border. An easy to grow clematis which flowers prolifically.

  • Garden care: Cut back the stems to healthy buds at the base of the plant each winter and apply a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the plant avoiding the immediate crown.
