Every year we look forward to these big velvety purple flowers of Clematis 'The Velvet' (Hiroshi Hayakawa, 1989) with their contrasting creamy anthers on greenish filaments. As the flowers age, the central red bar of each sepal becomes visible. Suitable for container or the garden. All of our Clematis are two year old plants that are suitable for immediate planting in your garden.

May to June; August to September.  6 ft.

Sun, Part Shade     Zones 5, 6, 7, 8
Early flowering in the spring on the previous year's growth. If you hard prune, you eliminate most or all of the early blooms. Instead, groom this after flowering by cutting back the top one-third to one-half of some stems. This encourages new growth for possible summer bloom.
