Clematis recta 'Serious Black ™'

Clematis recta 'Serious Black ™', also known as Clematis 'Lime Close' is an upright herbaceous clematis with glossy purple foliage in the spring and many masses of white flowers blooming atop 3' clumps of olive green foliage in summer. After flowering, new foliage is dark purple again, and compared to Clematis 'Purpurea', this cultivar blooms more profusely.

The plants are fairly sturdy as they emerge but then 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 in the summer.
 

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
