Clematis heracleifolia

Bush Clematis (Blue Bush Clematis)

Categories: Shrubs

The blossoms(blue-violet) arrive in late summer or early autumn, at and near the tops of the stalks, fanning out in clusters of what seem to be small tubes, and then opening into hyacinth shape, with sepals ranging in different specimens from pale to deep blue, and a small bright-yellow center. They have good staying power and a pleasing scent, and if caught at the right moment can serve surprisingly well as cut flowers.
