This variety and Sweet Autumn Clematis are the best Clematis I have ever grown in my no fuss garden. It blooms just about non stop throughout the growing season. VERY carefree and easy to grow!

The description on my plant tag, from Donahue's Clematis, reads:
The 2" bell-shaped flowers are intense deep blue/purple with lighter blue recurved petals. Flowers fade to indigo blue. Blooms June-September. Shade roots to keep roots cool and moist."
