We have long been fans of the shrubby Clematis and are delighted to have this selection from seed collected in China by Harry van de Laar in 1980. The terminal clusters of small tubular flowers are nicely fragrant. The sepals of the individual flowers open fully and recurve revealing the stamens. The large and jagged foliage is attractively rugged. Clematis heracleifolia `China Purple' is best grown in full sun.

Summer.  2 ft. x 2 ft.

Dark Violet Purple flowers

Sun     Zones 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
This is an herbaceous clematis and can be cut back at the end of winter.
