This hardy climber is a rampant grower that can reach to 30′, but can easily be kept in check by cutting stems back to 12″ in spring. It blooms on the current year's growth, and unlike many Clematis, it will thrive and bloom well in partial shade. Plants are unlikely to bloom the first year, but expect them to begin blooming the second year.
Growing on a fence in my garden.
Planted Spring 2017. The blooms have a sweet fragrance.
