Clematis × durandii Integrifolia Group
Clematis x durandii is a long-flowering herbaceous clematis. Four petaled nodding flowers in indigo violet with creamy anthers appear for several months in summer. Buds are held high on long stems which keeps them from being hidden among the leaves. The scrambling habit of this small vine is great for growing through vigorous, medium sized shrubs or for rambling through a bed of perennials.

Culture NotesThis clematis will grow best in full sun to light or open shade. Provide a location with rich well-drained soil where it can be regularly watered during dry weather. Plant vines that are well rooted and at least two years old. In our climate planting too deeply can smother the roots. Set young plants at the same depth they were in their nursery pots. Clematis are heavy feeders and appreciate fertilizing in spring. This clematis dies back to the ground every winter and blooms on new growth in the summer. Cut last season’s vines back to 4 to 6 inches tall in late winter.
