This herbaceous clematis forms an open bush, that looks wonderful when allowed to drift through the mixed or herbaceous border. For several weeks from midsummer, it is covered with deliciously scented, hyacinth-like, lavender-blue flowers, which really stand out against the backdrop of the lobed green leaves.
- Garden care: Cut back the stems to the base of the plant each winter and apply a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the plant, avoiding the immediate crown. Use twiggy prunings, ring stakes or bamboo canes to provide support.
