Clematis recta 'Purpurea'
Clematis recta 'Purpurea'
Blooming This Week (last week of May):
Clematis recta 'Purpurea' (Ground Clematis)
When we think "Clematis", most of us think of climbing vines with large vibrant flowers. Clematis recta is an exception with its non-climbing habit and its small, delicate, frothy white flowers. This is a Bush or Ground Clematis with a sprawling, rambling habit that can weave through a garden or be supported upright by artificial means such as a Peony ring or decorative support structure. The new foliage is a purple-red color , maturing to a glaucus grey-green. The buds are borne in clusters , opening to abundant masses of  fragrant star-shaped cream white flowers. Attractive wispy silver seedheads follow the flowers and remain for several weeks. The foliage remains attractive throughout the growing season. A fine plant that deserves more recognition and use. Hardy to Zone 3.

We also carry several other bush type Clematis, including Clematis integrifolia (in several color variations) and Clematis 'Mrs. Robert Brydon'
