12" tall x 18" wide (seed propagated). A stunning wildflower from the southern foothills of Colorado's Front Range, this non-vining bush clematis will add a touch of the unusual to your garden! Clematis scottii is a long-lived perennial with showy 1" deep blue, bell-shaped flowers that are followed by fuzzy, white, ornamental seed heads. Grown in enriched, well-drained soils, it can take full sun when regularly irrigated or can tolerate drier soil in partial shade. Like a peony, Sugarbowl Clematis takes a few growing seasons to establish itself, but will put on an amazing floral display once mature. Very long lived when happy.
