Description

It's cooler than cool! Large, icy violet-blue flowers cover Still Waters™ clematis. Early flowering, long-lasting blooms appear from late spring to late summer. Unusual flower color would look especially striking planted with a dark-leafed shrub-like Black Lace® sambucus, or grown on its own on a trellis or fence. It also makes a good cut flower. Blooms on old and new wood.

Growing Tips

"Feet in the shade, head in the sun" - that's the old adage for success with clematis. This vine will thrive if mulch, a rock, or neighboring plants are positioned to keep the roots and base of the plant in cool, shaded conditions, while the leafy vines themselves bask in the sun. Provide a sturdy structure for vines to climb on at planting time.
