Clematis 'Blue Bird' (Frank L. Skinner) is a Canadian hybrid. The four, narrow, twisted, outer sepals are mauve blue while the inner staminodes are slightly paler. They surround a boss of white stamens. This doubled look is the result of crossing Clematis alpina with C. macropetala. All of our Clematis are two year old plants that are suitable for immediate planting in your garden.

April to June.  8-10 ft.
