Clematis integrifolia is a herbaceous perennial with lance shaped mid green leaves. The simplicity of the foliage shows the stunning steel blue, bell flowers front of stage. These captivating flowers are borne in summer, followed by a graceful silvery brown seed head.
This hardy perennial is great for the rock garden. Grown well in fertile, well drained soil, in partial sun. Like a lot of taller perennials this may need support to show off its true potential.
These are small plants so will have to be well looked after for the first year.
THIS PLANT IS WINTER DORMANT
