Very vigorous plant for me! Fills in quickly even if hard pruned to the ground.
My plant is only two years old, so I expect more blooming in subsequent years. Foilage has been excellent and trouble free. Flowers are a lovely shade of med blue/purple.
Quite winter hardy even here in NE Ohio. A keeper in my garden!

Just an update: 5/18/12 A beauty and very vigorous here! Large buds can be seen in the photo, and here she is blooming her first blooms in her 3rd full season here! Gorgeous clemmy!
