Outstanding Qualities

Charming flowers in shades of purple and violet are urn-shaped and pendent at the ends of short stalks amidst the grass green foliage. This non-vining clematis is more perennial-like, growing to only one & a half to three feet annually and then dying back to the base in the winter. Clematis integrifolia is attractive supported by a shrub or sturdy perennial, growing through a wire or wooden structure, in a container, or rambling along the ground amongst low-growing companions.
