Plant details

Clematis tubulosa has scented, blue, hyacinth-like flowers in clusters from late summer until mid-autumn, filling the gap between the main summer flowers and the real autumn colours it teams wonderfully well with Japanese anemones, and looks good planted to form a ground cover carpet under fruiting trees such as crab apple or edible quince. Silver, fluffy seed-heads then develop later.
