'Tube' Clematis 'China Blue'
This clematis spreads by self-seeding. It will bloom the second year from germination. It does really well germinating from winter sowing. A beautiful navy blue with lots and lots of bloom, this clematis is good zone 3 - 8. It grows about 2 1/2' tall and tolerates a wide range of conditions.
The Allen Centennial Gardens grew it a couple years back with grasses and calamintha. I saw it then and realized how wonderful this easy clematis is and how underutilized. Find it! Grow it!
