One of the most beautiful and unusual Clematis, Multi Blue has a central boss of stamens that is as lovely as its petals, and it thrives best in light shade! Add to this the rich, hard-to-find blue shade of its blooms and the fact that it repeats reliably at the end of the season, and you've got a high-performing, highly distinctive climber you'll treasure!

The flowers of this 6- to 8-foot-tall climber measure 3 to 4 inches across, with big, overlapping, nicely pointed petals. The rich blue is highlighted with a faint central stripe of white on every petal, and the white is repeated in the frilly stamens whorled around the center of every bloom. The overall effect is of a starburst -- eye-catching in the garden or cut and floated in a bowl of water for indoor enjoyment!

Multi Blue blooms heavily in early summer, with the heaviest showing when grown in dappled or partial shade. Occasional flowers follow all summer, and then at the end of the season, another big bloom flush provides a terrific finale! Find a place of honor on a trellis, arbor, fence, post, or even the mailbox for this showstopper!

This climber spreads about 3 to 4 feet wide, so space the plants accordingly if planting a series to twine through a fence or blanket a bare wall. They need support as they climb, and prefer to have their roots remain cool -- so mulch heavily after planting. Zones 3 to 9. Pruning Group II.
