Venosa Violcea means "violet veins." To encourage new growth, give it a light pruning when the first round of flowers is fading. This should produce another round of flowers. Has excellent resistance to clematis wilt. Very vigorous and free-flowering. You won't be disappointed with this one!

The color for Venosa Violacea is shown as purple. Is there a way to add the secondary color of near white?
