This plant does well for me but is not for every one. It does not climb but has a bushy habit. Very pretty flowers when it goes into bloom.

this is a darling little clematis! It stays bushy and around 18 inches for me. It is in nearly full shade, whatever sun it gets is just dappled for a short period through the tree it is under.

somewhat drought-tolerant. I have it in part shade, in heavy clay. It blooms nearly all summer.

Easily grown in fertile, medium wet, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Prefers full sun. Roots should be kept cool, shaded and uniformly moist.

Erect stems- some relaxed and sprawling
