A beautiful. non-clinging variety of Clematis producing an enchanting display of masses of rich, glossy, deep-purple, bell-shaped flowers that have paler silvery-purple margins that taper to pointed, recurved tips. Each of the four tepals has very prominent ribs down the centre. The purple interior of the bell has shiny, red-purple bars and a small cluster of yellow anthers is just visible. The long, rigid flower stalks make these blooms ideal for flower-arranging and they will last for over a week in water.
Suitable for growing in containers or planting in the garden.
Raised by Mr. Kazushige Ozawa of Japan in 1988
