We selected numerous seedlings from a giant form of Clematis integrifolia that we were given by the late Kazushige Ozawa. Among those seedlings was this much shorter, hebaceous beauty with lightly bronzed young foliage and large complementary rose pink bell-flowers whose sepals recurve broadly and twist giving the flower its pinwheel appearance. The sepals are also ruffled along their margins. Tie this up to a single stake and enjoy a long season of bloom. Or allow it to ramble for a wilder effect. The flowers make excellent, long-lasting cuts. If deadheaded, the stems will continue to produce new flowers. The showy, silvery seedheads are a bonus.
