Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CLEMATIS viticella ssp. campaniflora
Campanula-flowered Purple Clematis, Italian Leather Flower
Campanula-flowered clematis is a charming, vigorous small-flowering climber. The flowers are bell shaped, nodding, and white to pale blue with creamy yellow centers. Compared to other widely-grown, large-flowered clematis, it flowers later, from midsummer to mid-fall, a welcome time for such a profuse show of bloom.
Like most clematis it grows best in full to partial sun and likes rich, cool, friable soil. Woody vines should be pruned in late winter as new buds begin to show low on last year's stems. Leave two to four new buds on each stem, and remove everything above them. The new stems are extremely fast-growing and can reach great heights. Use on trellises and walls, or allow to climb over shrubs, and conifers to add vertical interest in the garden.
