Outstanding Qualities

A profusion of royal purple flowers burst forth in early summer and continues for weeks. This non-vining clematis is more perennial-like, growing to only three or four feet annually and then dying back to the base in the winter. SAPHYRA INDIGOâ„¢ 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.
