Extremely generous with blooms. First blooms are much larger than later ones. I cut mine back hard last year and it has rebounded and flowered more than ever.

A beautiful clematis to grow through evergreen shrubs. In early summer it has medium to large flowers, later in the summer the flowers are a bit smaller. The tepals are slightly recurved.

Parentage: 'Viviand Morel' x c. Texensis'
