Clematis heracleifolia ‘China Purple’


Bush Clematis

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.157.150


The Bush Clematis is related to the climbing varieties, forming a bushy, upright plant suited to growing in the border. This selection bears interesting clusters of fragrant rich violet-blue flowers, a little like a hyacinth, starting in mid summer. Fluffy seed heads usually appear in late fall. Likes to clamber over a nearby shrub, or can be staked. Great for cutting. In spring, this should be pruned back to about three inches, leaving a woody base for new growth to start from. May be divided in spring, but plants resent being disturbed.
