Common name: Clematis
Free-flowering double dahlia-like purple flowers that are 4-6" make this plant really stand out in the garden.
It blooms in late spring and again in late summer to early fall.
It will perform its best in moist well-drained soil in full to part sun.
Make it happy by planting other plants by its roots, as they prefer them to be shaded.
A perfect plant for a trellis or arbor.
Prune in early spring lightly to shape.
Exposure: Full sun to part
