We received Clematis 'Cat's-Eye' from Japan several years ago and have been pleased with its free-flowering, long-blooming nature and its ease of care. 'Cat's-Eye' was hybridized by Masatake Udagawa and is a cross between Clematis integrifolia and an unknown large-flowered Clematis. The nodding buds develop into down-facing bell-shaped flowers which are lightly fragrant. As the bells gradually expand to 4-inch-wide flowers they begin to face out and slightly down. Rich rose pink is the predominant color of the four sepals but they are darker along their raised central bars. The reverse side of the flowers reveals dark rose central bars as well. The young leaves are somewhat glossy but turn matte as they mature. They can measure up to 5 inches long and 2 inches wide. This non-clinging clematis is ideal for tying up on a small trellis, or try trailing it through a flower bed.

Summer to early autumn.  3-4 ft.
