This is a lovely rosey/lavender colored Clematis that was developed in 1867 by Cripps. In the sun, the central bars are more pronounced. Of course like any Clematis, it takes 3 full years before it takes off and starts growing & flowering like crazy! I've even got a 2nd flush of color in mid-late September! Mine is growing up the post of our two-story deck (in shade most of the day).
