Shrubby perennial with pendulous curvy-petaled flowers. Native to Japan. My plant was grown from a seed trade labeled 'Clematis speciosa/stans mixture', so I'm not sure of its identity - I haven't found much information about C. speciosa.
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...

|remy||Sep 14, 2011||It is Clematis stans. I was in the original 'Annual Rare/Unusual/Named Variety Seed' swap on GW. The trader who put the packet together had written during the swap "I just collected some herbaceous clematis speciosa mixed with stans. It is same group but flowers are pink on speciosa and pale blue on stans. Was not sure which is which after they stopped blooming so mixed them up. Check my trade list for pics. Grows up to two feet, non climbing, small clusters of flowers late summer. It is somewhat rare in a commerce." I found this out since one of mine (started from seed in 2009/10 winter) just bloomed. |
Thanks for that information, Remy.
