Romantika grows well in partial shade. It is a beautiful, generous plant with lovely smooth, green leaves and the darkest of purple flowers with yellow stamens. I can look at it all day. And, the faded flowers drop their petals, so there are no unsightly dead or dying flowers as with some other clematis.

This was a slow starter but is finally coming into its own this year with lots of flowers.

Beautiful purple flower, so deep it's almost black. I grew this in a container for about six years before I planted it in the ground, cut it to the ground every Fall, and every Spring it comes back bigger and better. It usually flowers twice for me - once in the Spring after it's first growth, then again in the Fall after a second growth spurt at the end of summer. By far my favorite Clematis of all the ones I've grown.
