Anyone have this? I just bought her...she is so cute and suppose to be a tiny clematis??? Should I just leave her as ground cover or should I put her on a tiny trellis of some sort. I bought her with one flower in bloom and it is so pretty!!! I am getting so excited.

Did you find it locally or did you order it?

I don't have it, but I heard it doesn't need support and have not seen a photo of it on a support.

I would like to find one of these and pot it up since it is small. I wonder how a potted clematis would overwinter here in zone 4? I saw photos of it on the web an now have it on my want list. Where did you get yours Dawn?

Also have one from last year as a gift. It is a very sweet little clem I am amazed how close to the ground it starts blooming.I have to move it in the fall. It is hiding between the lavender and a wall.
Be sure to let us know how your jewel is doing.

Wow Dawn, I can't believe that you found it local, but how lucky for you that you did considering everything. Enjoy your sweet little clem.

I planted mine in a hanging basket a couple of weeks ago as it's only supposed to be 12-24"
I was inspired by this image:
