Same experience as above; year 1 one plant, year 2, four seedlings close by so I am watching this carefully for invasiveness- Z 6.

I bought this clematis a few years ago from Br*shw**d nursery, as it came highly recommended. It blooms once, and the flowers are so small and down-facing it is hard to make them out amidst all the scrambling vine. Whilst they are pretty little does only bloom once.....AND.....
A major word of warning: THIS CLEMATIS IS EXTREMELY INVASIVE. It is just as bad....or WORSE than sweet Autumn clematis, here in zone 6. My neighbor, who loves unusual plants almost as much as me...asked, is that a weed??? It has popped up EVERYWHERE. For a once flowering, tiny flowered clematis where the flowers are hard to make out, i really find it hard to justify keeping mine. It is getting yanked and replaced with my Rooguchi or something else.

The leaves have a very strong and good taste of pepper and can be used for cooking.
