Pretty pale bluey-mauve nodding bell-shaped flowers, whose pointed tips open and twist slightly to reveal a deeper bluey-mauve and textured inside. The delicate perfume is more noticeable when planted in the sun.
Included in this group are those clematis commonly thought of as Viticella's, or viticella crosses. However we have taken the liberty to include some other cultivars in this group because their growth, habit and appearance is identical to that of the Viticella's. They include the likes of 'Blekitny Aniol', 'Polish Spirit' and 'Prince Charles' because of their similarities, and for ease of selection, we feel justified in placing them within this group.
They are all extremely hardy, very free flowering, their pruning is simple and they cannot be recommended highly enough. Especially useful for people new to growing clematis as they are extremely tolerant of what the gardener does to them! They all make excellent companions to grow with roses.
My favourite clematis
I grow many different varieties of clematis being something of a clematis fanatic. I love the scent of this clematis and the fact that it flowers it's socks off all Summer!! An outstanding variety!
