A species of Clematis that grows 3-5 m tall with noteworthy bell shaped flowers. Although it may sound a bit strange, it is fully hardy to zone 6 (at least the mother-plant of these seeds). Beautiful glaucous foliage and pale lavender to pink (or red) flowers with tick sepals having the tips slightly recurved and open to reveal a cream, tomentose inside. Feathery, ornamental tawny seed heads in the fall.
Hummingbirds and bumblebees love it! Grow it by itself or get inspired by the wonderful pictures from the ‘donor’s’ garden and combine it with other types of Clematis!
Germination: sown fresh in the fall or after cold-moist stratification (3-4 months) in the spring.
