A non-climber getting a little less tall than you but with much nicer flowers of a rich pinkish mauve sporting deep ridges on the reverse and with age the tips recurve and twist. Great for sprawling over a lanky shrub or up against a fence or you can just relax and let it scramble.
Very nice 2014 introduction from Holland of this hybrid in the Diversifolia Group. A small grower getting just 5 to 6 feet tall but with a serious flower display fro June to September. This is part of the trend towards breeding plants for small gardens and for containers. This will float your boat on the motion of your garden's ocean. Prune to 6" in Feb-Mar.
A very manageable yet floriferous Clematis with 3" blue-violet flowers set off by a tuffet of white whiskery stamens. This hybrid is in the diversifolia group and gets just 5'-6' tall appreciating a little help from its friends like nearby shrubs or small trellises. Young plants.
Heaps of praise have been bestowed upon this small hybrid and rightly so. Blue-lavender 3" starry flowers are produced over a long period of time from mid summer into September often. This is a scrambler not a twiner and will wend through shrubs to great effect orencouraged on a small trellis.
What is it about these small flowered Clems that tug at our hearts so? Violet urns with recurved tips of very thick substance are like a rich necklace of amethyst laid upon the leaves and you are whisked to a lavish lobby dressed to the nines with champagne flute in hand and the orchestra is faintly tuning. Lovely thing to dress a large shrub.
A very pleasing Dutch hybrid with the elegant Clematis texensis contributing excellent genetics. A small rambling vine to 5'-6' with loads soft shell pink trumpet shaped flowers looking like small tulips strewn on the foliage. Ideal scrambling into shrubs, these are young plants ready to settle in.
