Bred in 1987 by the Polish Jesuit priest Stefan Franczak, who also bred many day lilies. The name 'Blue Angel' is not inspired by a US-American flight formation or the German environmental seal, but by the enticing beauty of the actress Marlene Dietrich as “Blue Angel” in the 1930 film of the same name. This clematis quickly gained international fame for its exceptional characterstics. The ethereal, light blue flowers are similar to Emilia Plater but, at 8 – 15 cm, are larger and have a pronounced ruffled edge. The 4 - 6 petals can be pointy or round.
