With shaggy aster-like stamens this looks like a flower within a flower. It has huge saucer blooms in an incredible ice-blue mauve.
Use this to clad a sunny or dappled shade wall from spring to autumn, or it's compact enough to go in a pot. This is an unusually long-flowering clematis.
Pruning Group 2 - light pruning (remove top third) should be carried out during late February or March each year.
