    Broad, bell-shaped, light to mid-blue spring flowers and mid-green leaves. This early spring flowering clematis is perfect for covering a north- or east-facing wall. The fluffy seed-heads, an important decorative feature, look fabulous glistening in the sun. Take care to handle the delicate roots with care when planting.

  • Garden care: No routine pruning is necessary. If the spread of the plant needs to be restricted prune immediately after flowering, cutting back overlong shoots to healthy buds. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.
