Gardeners' Notes:

Positive sunny70 On Jul 10, 2013, sunny70 from Ringwood, NJ (Zone 6b) wrote:

I've had tremendous success with this variety. I have it planted against a 6 ft. fence, and it flowers profusely beginning at the base of the fence all the way up. The blooms open to a dusky blue/gray color and lighten to a pretty pale blue that provides a perfect backdrop to my echinacea purpurea. Blooms at least 3 weeks, with reblooming later in the season. Highly recommend.

Lovely, lights up a (too) shady spot, tolerates neglectful watering in the summer.

Have had this plant for 3 years and have it in a large pot...waiting for that trellis to be built you know :~) It has had no winter protection at all and just sits out in it's pot all winter. I mulch it every spring. This year 2005 it has bloomed and bloomed! It's had blooms for about 2 months now and shows no sign of stopping. I keep it well watered as it's been very hot and dry here this year. The blooms are small likely due to it being in a pot. I love this clematis!

I've had it for 3 years, and it got wilt every year.
