Clematis viorna

Family ranunculaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z4-8)
Flowers pink
Size vine to 6'
Light sun-part shade

Native to the Eastern US, this vine bears nodding bell-shaped flowers in a charming powder-coated shade of purple-pink. Trying to get them established from seed (not an easy task) – wish me luck!

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
