Clematis `Dark Dancer' was found at our nursery 15 years ago but never released until 2012. The parentage is unclear but we think it is a cross between C. `Jan Lindmark' and C. `Pamela Jackman' which were growing near each other. The four, long, tapering sepals are dark red purple. When we first found the seedling, the flowers were literally dancing in our spring winds. The leaves are 3-ternate with burgundy stems. This is a vigorous vine which needs regular weekly watering during the summer.

Mid- to late spring.  8 ft.
