This is a low growing, non-clinging Clematis which is best grown in a container either in a cool greenhouse or Alpine house. The flowers are dioecious. It can be grown from fresh seed, but you need a male and female plant to produce seed.

Received The Royal Horticultural Society, Award of Garden Merit (AGM) in 1993.
