The Prairie Collection originated from a cultivar raised on the Canadian Prairies. They are winter hardy to Zone 4. They are not vines but are herbacious and grow to approx 3 feet across and high. The foliage is almost tropical and doesn't really look like Clematis foliage at all.

Gazelle has 2 inch white bell-shaped flowers opening with their bells upward. Yellow stamens.

Prarie Clematis come in Pink (Medley tm) and Mid-Violet blue (Chinook tm).
