Latin Name: Clematis 'Jackmanii'
The granddaddy of clematis, more popular than any other variety and for good reason; this variety features endless waves of rich velvet-blue flowers throughout the season; tough, hardy and thrives with neglect.
Jackmanii Clematis is a multi-stemmed deciduous woody vine with a twining and trailing habit of growth. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.
This is a relatively low maintenance woody vine. It is a Type 3 clematis; each spring it should be pruned back to within a few inches of the ground, as it flowers on new wood of the season. It is a good choice for attracting hummingbirds to your yard.
