Its deep purple colour makes it a must for a sunny location. Due to its depth of colour, this clematis is best grown in association with other shrubs or roses that have a light colour.
It looks stunning with silver or golden-variegated foliage shrubs in a garden setting.
However, it does make a stunning plant when grown in a container, on an obelisk, with an under-planting of grey-foliaged annual plants.
Ideal for the smaller garden or for growing in a pot or container on a deck garden, patio or outdoor dining area.
Launched at the 2009 famous Chelsea Flower Show.
