One of a trio of purple viticella-type clematis that we have planted along a walk lined with clematis and roses, Clematis 'Black Prince' has proved to be long-blooming, free flowering and very beautiful. With its nodding, somewhat cupped flowers it is closer in appearance to the species viticella than the large-flowered clematis nearby. Its maroon filaments and anther tips blend into the purple of the flowers. We let it spill around coral and pink toned Rosa 'Westerland' to great effect. All of our Clematis are two year old plants that are suitable for immediate planting in your garden.
