I purchased it from the on-line 'store' gardenimport.com. It was around 6" tall when I planted it. It grew quickly but has stopped at around 4' tall. This being its first year it isnt wide but it is healthy.
I am new to davesgarden.com...is it possible to use a photo hosting service to display a picture in a forum post ie [IMG]...[/IMG]?
And here is this same plant 4 months later. It has always been in bloom during this time period and even with the cold temps and a fall frost it is still showing nice flowers (picture taken this evening).
Its continued floriferousness all season, coupled with its very compact size (I have it on a five foot obelisk and it does just fine in that space) make it a great clematis for a residential (ie smaller) garden.
