First Clematis variety with golden-yellow leaves. Handsome contrasting violet-blue, bell-shaped, wide-opening flowers, 5-6 cm across, are composed of 4-8 lanceolate tepals. It blooms in late April and May and repeats flowering in summer but the crop is scarce. From June to autumn fancy fluffy seed heads adorn the plant. It grows 2-3 m high and clings to its support by twining leaf stalks. Very frost hardy and undemanding. It tolerates partial shade but the variegation is more prominent in full sun. Particularly useful for growing on fences, stones, old tree stumps, deciduous and coniferous shrubs. Makes good ground cover.
