I got this clematis in 2004 and it never really did anything. I got my first and only bloom this year, almost missed it, all tucked in behind the corkscrew vine. What a beauty it is, well worth the wait. :~)

This is perhaps the oldest selection of macropetala, developed in 1935. However, it is still popular today. The flowers are deep pink, double with a ligher pink interior. Very floriferous and highly recommended.
