This is a rarely grown form of one of the most loved hardy deciduous clematis species. It varies from the wild form in being a little more restrained in habit making it ideal over arches and such like, its new foliage is quite bronzed and the flowers area lovely mix of white and soft salmon pink as well as being double. I have no idea why it isn’t grown more often. Like most others in this Genus it likes it’s roots in the shade and the top in the sun and only requires pruning if it is getting too big. I have large plants in 8″ pots available and ready to plant for $29.50.
