‘Blue Ribbons’

This bush type clematis sports the most charming nodding blue flowers imaginable! The long-lasting 1.5” indigo-blue blooms and mop-head seedpods decorating the mid-green foliage at the same time. The first flush of open, bell-shaped flowers appears in early Summer on the previous year’s growth, packing a lot of flowering punch into its 15”x18” frame. A second blooming may then follow on new growth in Fall. Attractive silvery seed heads stay on the herbaceous plant for months. Loved by bees and butterflies. Its compact size makes it a perfect candidate for a container. Grow in fertile, well-drained soil.
