Clematis recta 'Purpurea'

Clematis recta 'Purpurea' is a shrub or herbaceous clematis with purple turning green foliage, growing 3 to 4' tall and 3' wide, topped with masses of small, fragrant white flowers in summer.

The plants are fairly sturdy as they emerge but then tend to ramble a bit as they grow through the summer. Some people like to use cages or bamboo poles to help support these shrub clematis, or plant them near sturdy perennials that can help to assist in keeping them upright. The purple coloring makes an excellent foliage contrast in the garden and the flowers are an added bonus.

Height: 3 - 4' Spacing: 36" apart
Light: Full sun to light shade Soil: Average to rich, moist but well-draining
Bloom Time: Summer Zones: 3 - 8
