The flowers are not spectacular and the plants are floppy. Still it is the sort of plant that can just fit into any garden anywhere. I wouldn't be without it.

This clematis needs support because it is very floppy. It doesn't climb like most clematis do. I find the scent of it a little disappointing. I cut the blooms after flowering so they 'll rebloom...however, not as abundant as they do the first time. It dies back to the ground during winter time.
