Until you see these brilliant white-and-violet blooms in your own garden, it's difficult to visualize their impact. They are so numerous, so intensely colored, and so lovely! An heirloom variety from the famous French plantsman Lemoine, this 1883 introduction is as timely today as the season it was first shown to the world.

The blooms measure 4 inches wide, with a base of white heavily overlaid with deep purple-magneta at the tips, shading to violet with spidery maroon veins. They begin in midsummer and continue into early fall, carrying the garden through one of its duller seasons with style and grace.

'Venosa Violacea' reaches 8 to 10 feet high and 2 feet wide, the perfect size for trellis, mailbox, lamppost, or climbing Rose. It is very, very heavy-blooming, the fresh green foliage nearly obscured by flowers at the height of the season. And most incredibly, it is tolerant of shade!

This Clematis was given the Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticulture Society, and generations of gardeners have adored it. You will find it pea-green reliable in border or container. Pruning Group III. Zones 4-9.
