I have only been growing this plant for a month, ordered it online, and it is already flowering. It is lovely and growing well in full sun.

My Negritianka grows on a south facing wall in zone 9b and never fades. It is one of my best for growth and flowering. And the dark purple/plum color goes with so many other plants. Grows well with roses or climbing with other well-mannered clematis cultivars, but needs something to show off it's dark colors. I would not recommend planting against a dark background.
