Glorious purply-bronze foliage with clusters of small white star-shaped flowers that have a hawthorn-like perfume.

Cultivation Advice
This lovely group of clematis can make useful additions to your herbaceous borders, with their abundance of star-like flowers which have a hawthorn perfume, they will attract bees and butterflies to the garden.  
Whilst they can be grown in any aspect they will flower better and the perfume will be stronger if grown in a sunny, free draining position.
To look their best, the non-climbing stems of 'Aromatica', mandschurica & recta 'Purpurea' require support to hold them erect. The purply-bronze foliage of recta Purpurea is wonderful in late spring and early summer.

A wide range of Clematis so good if it is a particular variety you are looking for

A good size plant that is well rooted through the pot.
