This is a truly stunning fragrant Clematis with a long-lasting display of deep, deep blue tubular flowers from July to September.  Being a herbaceous type of Clematis it will not climb or cling to a structure, instead growing from the base each spring into a small bush.

Its colour is very special, drawing the eye as true blue flowers do.  It really sings out against reddish-orange brickwork, which can overpower a lot of flower colours, but combines beautifully with yellows, whites and pinks too.  Relatively unfussy, it grows in either full sun or partial shade but needs a fertile free draining soil to thrive.
