Ranunculaceae

Botanical Name

CLEMATIS 'Lady Betty Balfour'

Plant Common Name

Clematis, Lady Betty Balfour Clematis, Late Large-flowered Clematis

General Description

Lady Betty Balfour clematis is a deciduous woody vine that bears many flowers late in the season. From summer to fall, large, rich purple to purple-blue flowers appear along twining stems covered with medium green leaves. This clematis grows best in sites with full sun and fertile, well drained soil. Flower buds develop from the current year's growth. As with most clematis, this selection adds a vertical element to the garden and looks best when trained on a fence, trellis or pergola.
