From the Mediterranean region, this is a very old garden plant and ancestor of myriad clematis hybrids. Flowers range light blue-violet to deep purple-rose; we offer a blue-purple variety with flowers that open well. Extremely robust, healthy and vigorous, therefore chosen for our viticella-assortment. Also develops flowers in shade! For trellises 3 - 5 metres high. The flowers look particularly beautiful from below, so position your trellis accordingly high, if you can. Flowers 3 – 5 cm, flowering time July to September. Refer to the general information for guidance on location, pruning, suitable wire rope systems, etc..
